    GOP In Shambles As Poll Finds Americans View Democrats as More Ethical and Honest

    GOP In Shambles As Poll Finds Americans View Democrats as More Ethical and Honest

    Despite spending years attacking the character of President Obama and the Democrats, a new Pew Research Center survey found that the American people trust Democrats more than Republicans 41%-31%.

    The Pew Research Centerís annual survey of policy and priorities found that Democrats led Republicans on a wide range of character issues. Democrats had a 25 point lead (52%-27%) on being more willing to work with the other party. Democrats held a 20 point (52%-32%) advantage on the question of who is concerned with the needs of people like me. By a margin of 54%-35%, Republicans were found to be the more extreme party in their positions. Respondents also thought the Republican Party was more influenced by lobbyists than the Democratic Party (47%-30%), but the most telling question was who do people trust to govern ethically and honestly.

    By a margin of 41%-31% those surveyed believed that Democrats govern in a more ethical and honest way than Republicans. This question goes to the heart of why Democrats continue to win elections. A majority of voters donít trust the Republican Party. They donít think Republicans will be honest with them. Some of these feelings are no doubt left over from the dishonest Bush administration, but much of the distrust comes from the way Republicans have chosen to govern.

    Republicans have been fundamentally dishonest with the American people. After they took control of the House in 2010, John Boehner said the Republican agenda was all about jobs. He and his caucus then spent years on dozens of attempts to repeal the ACA. Boehnerís Republican House majority hasnít proposed or passed a single jobs bill. However, they have voted to cut food stamps, energy assistance, aid for veterans, food for senior citizens, unemployment benefits, and almost every other aid program for the poor and middle class that you can think of.

    While cutting programs for the poor and middle class, Republicans have aggressively pushed an agenda of tax cuts and benefits for corporations and the wealthy. This survey reveals that the American people are paying attention to what Republicans have been up to. Republicans canít disguise their plans to cut taxes for the wealthy as a jobs bill, and expect no one to notice what they are really up to.

    Republicans have shown repeatedly during the Obama presidency that they donít care about the problems of average Americans. Democrats have taken up the mantle of fighting for everyone that the Republican agenda is harming, and people appear to be appreciating it.

    The Republican Party is in shambles because they are accurately viewed by most Americans as the uncaring party of the rich. Republicans can pay lip service to the middle class and claim they care about poverty, but they arenít fooling anyone.

    The GOP has been branded as the party of the wealthy few. President Obamaís efforts to reach across the aisle, and fight for the American people are paying off. Obama and the Democrats donít get credit in the media for what they are doing, but voters understand who is really on their side.

    President Obama has turned the Democratic Party into the party of middle class populism. There is only one party of the people in this country right now, and it isnít the Koch fueled GOP. President Obama isnít just setting the Democrats up for victory today. He has successfully exploited the desire of the Republicans to represent only the wealthy few to lay the groundwork for Democratic victories for years to come.

    Good to see that Americans are waking up to the destruction caused by the corrupt Repiglican Party.

    Between Chris Christie, Rand Paul, Rick Santorum, Huckabee, Boehner, McConnell, Issa, the car thief/arsonist and the rest of the Repiglican racists/misogynists/homophobics and their war on Women's rights, informed Americans are finally waking up to the destruction of corrupt Repiglicans, and their decades long failed policies.

    Bravo, Repiglicans are now racking up the lowest approval numbers of any political party in history.

    It's a shame it has taken so long, and so many lives could have been saved, literally, and economically, if only George W. Bush, and Ronald Reagan had never been presidents.

    It's amazing that our president has managed to accomplish so much in the face of consistant Repiglican corruption and obstruction.

    Bravo Mr. President!
