Total destruction: GOP out to biggest generic ballot leads in history in both Gallup and Rasmussen

posted at 7:06 pm on August 16, 2010 by Allahpundit

The most amazing thing about this? When Democrats tell people that voters hate the GOP as much as they hate them, they’re not blowing smoke. That’s basically true. In fact, in many polls, the Republican Party’s favorables are still lower than the Democrats’. And even so: Biggest generic ballot lead … in history. That’s how popular Hopenchange is.

The flip side of that calculus, of course: Imagine what the lead would be like if people liked the GOP.

Follow the link up top for the numbers stretching all the way back to 1946. Republicans hit 49 percent a few times during the blessed year of 1994 but not until now have they reached the 50-yard line. As for Rasmussen:

Republican candidates have jumped out to a record-setting 12-point lead over Democrats on the Generic Congressional Ballot for the week ending Sunday, August 15, 2010. This is the biggest lead the GOP has held in over a decade of Rasmussen Reports surveying.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 48% of Likely Voters would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate, while 36% would opt for his or her Democratic opponent. Support for Republicans is up two points from the previous week, while support for Democrats dropped three points.Republicans have led on the Generic Congressional Ballot since June of last year, and their lead hasn’t fallen below five points since the beginning of December…

Support for repeal of the health care reform bill is at 60%, its highest level in over a month, while the number of voters who believe repeal will be good for the economy has reached a new high.

The temptation will be to chalk this up to The One’s comments about the Ground Zero mosque but I’m skeptical that that’s what’s driving it. Both polls are based on averages over the course of a week and he didn’t chime in on the mosque until late Friday night. Unless the bottom dropped out in the polling over the weekend, last week’s numbers should be relatively unaffected. Although, if so, that prompts the question: What will next week’s numbers be like?

Meanwhile, because he’s clearly a political genius, Obama’s still whining about Republican opposition to an agenda that’s so unpopular that it’s carrying them to unprecedented leads in major polls. Exit question: Democrats can’t figure out a plan for the midterms. Any ideas?

replay last week. the spain vacation, the fact the fed decided to buy the gov debt, one of the worse weeks in the market, unemployment claims going up, retail sales in the crapper, Obama playing hoops and golf last weekend and then to top it off the GZM thing on friday. It was a week to forget for the dems. And all of it adds up to the numbers this week. It will get worse the bloom is off the rose and people see Obama and the dems for the marxists they are.

People may not like the GOP brand, but they do like conservative policies.

If the GOP gets control and shows it’s serious about fiscal conservatism and limiting government, restoring the economy, you will see those numbers edge up.

As of right now, it looks like 2010 will be bigger than 1994.

therightwinger on August 16, 2010 at 7:31 PM

The GOP had best recognize that this is not so much a rejection of Democrat policies as it is a rejection of statist, extra-Constitutional policies of both parties.

If they think that they can waltz into power and just continue with the same extended middle finger toward us and the Constitution we’ll throw their sorry arses out, too.

And we’ll keep doing it until we get the right people in power to reverse this horrible mess.

It might also be that they don’t want to admit that they like the Republicans better..it makes them feel good to say they are Democrats, you know the working man’s party and all that, and then when push comes to shove they vote for the Republican. If I remember correctly, when Reagan won 49 states only 24% of the people of this country even called themselves Republicans.

It’s not going to be ‘good enough’ to simply stop the Obama agenda.

slickwillie2001 on August 16, 2010 at 8:02 PM

“When Democrats tell people that voters hate the GOP as much as they hate them, they’re not blowing smoke. That’s basically true.”

Personally, I don’t think the word hate is the correct word to describe the public’s attitude towards the Republicans. I think the correct word to use is disappointment. After doing such an excellent job fiscally during the Clinton administration, the Republicans lost their way with a Republican in the White House who signed every spending bill sent to his desk. And I think the public just wants to get the keys to the treasure chest away from the Democrats and give the Republicans another chance at bringing some fiscal sanity to Washington. Although I won’t hold my breath that any of the politicians currently in Washington, or the new Congress coming in, will do the right thing. However, maybe those self dealing, self centered egos might come to their common senses and turn the fiscal ship in the correct direction.

Remember they just haven’t communicated their message to the people clearly enough. We are too stupid to know what they have done so they need to explain it in a way a child would understand.

Yeah, there was some guy on O’Reilly (I think it was) tonight who was saying that it was the president’s job to “teach” people how to view the whole mosque thing.

It’s a pity, about us people. We’re just stupid as all get out. We need people in government to tell us what to think. After all, we had NO IDEA there was such a thing as freedom of religion.

Dem plan: Run on the largest tax hike in history by letting Bush’s tax cuts expire and blame the tax hike on republicans.

This is why a third party would be successful. Voters can’t stand the democrats, but also can’t stand the republicans. Give them a third party, and it will be a plurality without even trying.

When Democrats tell people that voters hate the GOP as much as they hate them, they’re not blowing smoke. That’s basically true.

Yes, but for the grown-ups amongst us, it’s largely irrelevant.

I’ve grown to “hate” the GOP for being political Eunichs the last 15 years, but that’s nothing compared to the HATE I harbor for the Democrats.

And since I acknowledge the reality that it’s a two party system, that means the Republicans are going to get my love because that’s the only way to effective hammer the Democrats.

It stinks that the situation is so limited, but it is what it is.
