Voters Now Trust Republicans More than Democrats on Economic Issues

I realize that this is simply polling data that changes on a dime, but that is precisely the point. Obama has for the most part stuck to his word...he has implemented many of the programs and spending initiatives that he has promised, with more to come. However, these numbers show that Americans care more about what works than that liberal ideas are superior to that of conservatives. The Democrats did an amazing job of blaming this crisis on Republicans and conservative principles when in reality it was liberal principles enacted over the years that most likely led to the current situation. As more of Obama's policies get implemented, and the recession deepens, as I believe it will, maybe Americans will realize that having a liberal president and congress that can enact their agenda does nothing but further hurt our nation. Perhaps then conservative principles will win out. It is less, not more government that will save us from this crisis. We shall see...
