Tom Jensen at Public Policy Polling:
Last week someone asked me what poll data I would use to sum up what’s happening in this election in the simplest terms possible. Here it is:
-On our last national poll 49% of respondents said the economy had gotten worse since Barack Obama became President.
-The folks who thought the economy had gotten worse who had already decided how to vote in November are going Republican by a 92-8 margin.
If voters think the economy’s gotten worse under a Democratic President they’re going to vote Republican. Add in the Democrats’ enthusiasm issues and you have the formula for the big GOP victory that’s likely on the way.
