Liberty on Tap since 1984
Polls in April are about as meaningful as baseball games in April, but they can be revealing all the same. CNN/Rasmussen did one of those classic "Which party do you trust?" polls and I guarantee the numbers had the same effect on Democratic leaders in Congress as a Bob Gibson fastball would have had on some hapless batter back in 1968: devestation.
Some highlights... which party do you trust on:
National Security: GOP +15
Abortion GOP +15
Ok, fine. But those are traditionally strong issues for the GOP. What else you got:
Economy: GOP +12
Immigration: GOP +13
Social Security: GOP +12
Wait... Economy? Immigration? Social Security? Wait it gets better:
Education: GOP +3
Health Care: GOP +16
Health Care?!?! After President Obama's historic, ground-breaking, paradigm-shifting, mind-blowing win on Health Care and the country not only prefers the GOP, but by a staggering 16 points?! Wow. My only concern is that it's going to be difficult to improve on these numbers, but the momentum is there and the GOP would be wise to seize on it.
