Voters Ready to Punish Democrats

Most voters are not happy with the Democrats’ trillion-dollar porkfest, and, with the Dems now unambiguously in control in Washington, they know whom to blame. That’s the only inference one can draw from Rasmussen’s latest generic Congressional preference poll. The parties are now in a virtual dead heat, with 40% preferring a generic Democratic candidate and 39% choosing the generic Republican.

These numbers bounce around a good deal, but it’s been quite a while since the parties were this close. On election day the Democrats had a six-point lead, and the margin was seven points as recently as mid-January.

I believe Rasmussen will come out with another survey on the “stimulus” bill tomorrow; it will be interesting to see whether support has continued to drop over the past week, or whether President Obama’s intervention has stopped the bleeding.
