The October Rasmussen Trust numbers. (Ten for ten)

[UPDATE] Welcome, AoSHQ readers. And Instapundit readers.  And Jules Crittenden readers, too.  And Hot Air readers, of course.  I cover this every month, you know.

Rasmussen hasn’t written the article yet – but they put the new numbers on their BY THE NUMBERS page.  And it’s not pretty for Democrats:

October 2009 September 2009
Issue Dem GOP Diff Dem GOP Diff Shift
Health Care 40% 46% (6) 44% 44% - (6)
Education 38% 43% (5) 45% 40% 5 (10)
Social Security 37% 45% (8) 43% 41% 2 (10)
Abortion 35% 47% (12) 37% 44% (7) (5)
Economy 35% 49% (14) 39% 47% (8) (6)
Taxes 35% 50% (15) 40% 48% (8) (7)
Iraq 31% 50% (19) 37% 47% (10) (9)
Nat’l Security 31% 54% (23) 39% 51% (12) (11)
Gov’t Ethics 29% 33% (4) 34% 35% (1) (3)
Immigration 33% 40% (7) 33% 45% (12) 5

Note the dives on… everything, really, except immigration issues: the GOP increased its lead in 9 out of 10 categories since last month. But particularly note the Health Care, Social Security, Economy, and Taxes numbers. Does the Democratic Party feel like demonizing their opponents on health care rationing some more? – because I think that the GOP can somehow manage to find the strength to keep bearing up under the Democrats’ scorn.
