Nearly two years into the recession, opinion about which political party is responsible for the severe economic downturn is shifting, according to a new national poll.
A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday morning indicates that 38 percent of the public blames Republicans for the country’s current economic problems. That’s down 15 points from May, when 53 percent blamed the GOP. According to the poll 27 percent now blame the Democrats for the recession, up 6 points from May. Twenty-seven percent now say both parties are responsible for the economic mess.
(H/t: Yid with Lid & Hot Air) And to quote Solomon Short: Rome didn’t fall in a day, either. So keep reminding people about just who’s been in charge of the purse strings since January of 2007, and the whole blessed government since January of 2009. Every little bit helps, and we’ve still got a year to correct the historical record.
