Rasmussen’s recent poll should concern Democrats–if they hadn’t already enacted the single most transformational piece of legislation ever knowing full well that the American people hated it. But they made that decision knowing full well that their futures hung in the balance. Or maybe they didn’t care about the future because they had some other guarantees for other lobbying or ambassadorships or inside administration jobs to keep them in the manner to which they’re accustomed.
The numbers aren’t a joke though. From Rasmussen:
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 46% would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate, up three points from last week, while 39% would opt for his or her Democratic opponent, up four points from the previous survey.
No, it’s not a joke.
But the joke may well be on the American people. I’m not sure the Democrats care about re-election.
