Changed Minds

July 14, 2009

It appears that the leaderless Stupid Party of No is quite attractive to a majority of the American people when compared to the Democratic Party:

Voters now trust Republicans more than Democrats on eight out of 10 key electoral issues, including, for the second straight month, the top issue of the economy. They’ve also narrowed the gap on the remaining two issues, the traditionally Democratic strong suits of health care and education.
Republicans are now trusted more on taxes (52%-36%), Social Security (42%-37%), abortion (46%-39%), Iraq (45%-41%), the economy (46%-41%), national security (49%-40%), immigration (40%-34%) and are statistically tied on ethics (34%-33%). Democrats hold narrow leads on health care (46%-42%) and education (41%-38%).

At this time, in the French Cowboy’s opinion, this says more about the Democrats than it does about the Republicans. Specifically, the results of this poll should give the ambitious central planners with the nation-changing projects in the White House food for some soul-searching thought. The abortion numbers are particularly interesting.

While the Dems still win in health care and education, once the link between those two areas and the crucially important others, like the economy and taxes, are realised, nothing should stand in the way of major electoral victories for the GOP in the coming elections. Unfortunately, the mainstream media is unwilling and/or unable to explain to the public that the ‘cheaper and better’ health care agenda Obama is promising is as realistic as losing weight through eating more ice cream or that his plan to sink tons of tax money into the swamp that is public education while doing the bidding of teachers’ unions is not going to improve the quality of education. Therefore, conservatives need to speak out themselves and explain how sticking to the nation’s founding principle of individual liberty is still the best – or rather the only – way for a people to thrive. Madame Palin, have I got a job for you!
