Yesterday in a post it was pointed out that the 23rd Congressional Race will be different than the 20th Congressional race when the country was still giddy over the great One.
There is more polling information out and it is consistent with the other recent polls, which show people are leery of the Obama administration's policies.
AP GfK Poll
The May polling showed 48% of the people polled thought the country was headed in the right direction while 46% thought the country was headed in the wrong direction. The July polling shows a reversal in the numbers at 40% and 54% respectively.
The same periods showed Obama had a 64% approval and a 32% disapproval and during the current poll the numbers are 55% and 42%.
Unemployment and the economy remain the issues with the highest importance followed by health care and the federal deficit - all issues that have been recently impacted by decisions or currently being dealt with by Obama and the Democratic Congress in Washington and people's view of Obama's handling is waning considerably.
These issues loom large in the upcoming election for the 23rd district. The Republican candidate, RNC and NRCC will be critical of the Democrats handling of them, but that criticism should not be without their own ideas.
It will be interesting to watch Aubertine or whomever attempt to defend policies that are losing support with the public.
