Congressional Democratic Leaders Lose Lead Over Republicans in Public Opinion
A poll released by the Pew Research Center shows that Congressional Democratic leaders, who enjoyed a 19 point approval lead over Republican leaders just a year and a half ago, as the Obama administration began, have squandered the lead down to just 2 points. Moreover, the outright disapproval level is higher for Democratic Leaders than for their Republican counterparts. Even more ominously, Independent voters are more disapproving of Democrats than they are of Republicans. Watch out, there, Heinrich and Teague. For the whole poll, which also shows greater support for Obama's economic policies than Bush's economic policies, click here.
