Voters Swinging to Republicans on Issues

Being out of power can do wonders for a political party. Voters have now witnessed 2 1/2 years of Democratic control over Congress and six months of total control in Washington, and they don’t much like what they see. As a result, the Rasmussen survey now finds that likely voters trust Republicans more than Democrats on eight out of ten key issues, including a 46-41 margin on the economy and 52-36 on taxes.

If these trends continue, we may see the beginning of a Republican comeback in 2010.
