Gallup poll: Public perception with republicans on budget

A new Gallup/USA Today poll contains a counterintuitive finding: the age group most receptive to House Budget Chair Paul Ryan‘s plan to deal with the budget – seniors.

Republicans hold a double-digit lead over Democrats in public perception of which party would do a better job dealing with the federal budget, according to the survey. 48 percent prefer Republicans, while 36 percent prefer Democrats in Congress.

Young voters sided with Obama.

Interesting, because they will be the ones who will end up with nothing when they do wake up, if all things continue as they are.

Gallup: Democrat states cut in half since ’08

A survey released by Gallup Tuesday indicates that in 2010 a smaller proportion of voters across the country identified as Democrats.

Results reflect a continued trend among southern and Appalachian voters, but the shift is most particularly pronounced in swing states of the Midwest, in the New England states of Maine and New Hampshire, and in Nevada and Colorado.
