There is much more to be gleaned from this Gallup poll but the fact that ‘climate change’ doesn’t even make the list is a real killer for the dems. The fact that “Situation with Russia” is not even measurable also looms poorly for the dems. But, perhaps the biggest problem for the dems is not what people are not interested in but what they are and the top three vote getters are all trending in the President’s favor. Since the beginning of the year the three “most important problem(s) facing the country today”:
The ‘economy’ in general down from 20 to 14%Immigration is up from 8 to 22%Dissatisfaction with government/poor leadership is down from 35 to 19%
Now, lets see where the dems stand on these three most important issues. They want to repeal the tax cut and increase taxes calling the extra money in people’s paychecks “crumbs”. They want open borders, no wall, eliminate ICE and allow illegals to vote. And lastly, despite nothing but constant criticism from everyone they are a lot less dissatisfied with “poor leadership” since I believe they are still very dissatisfied with government in general their only saving grace being Trump’s leadership.
And where do the dems stand on the issues that are not even measurable? Well, that is plain enough. They are all in on Russia and they are all in on climate change, NEITHER of which the American people give a darn about.
If I were an honest dem (I don’t think there is any such thing) but if I were I would look at these numbers and be more than just a little concerned. Wouldn’t you?
