CNN Poll: Americans prefer Democratic policies


Despite the bruising battle over their health care reform proposals, congressional Democrats have maintained an advantage over their Republican counterparts on one key measure, according to a new national poll.

A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Wednesday indicates that a bare majority of Americans, 51 percent, believe that the Democrats' policies are good for the country, with 46 percent saying that those policies would take the country in the wrong direction.

By contrast, 53 percent of people questioned in the poll say that the GOP's polices would move the nation in the wrong direction, with 42 percent saying Republican policies are good for the country.

"The numbers for both parties are virtually unchanged since late August, just before President Barack Obama's health care speech to Congress opened the latest round of debate on this divisive issue," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.
So, after a summer and fall of full-tilt teabagging, we find the electorate pretty much where it was before on whether Democratic or Republican policies are better for the country.

This is hardly surprising. Democrats actually have policies. The Republicans have none. Tax cuts, deregulation, and tort reform are not policies. They are talking points.

Similarly, the GOP's lack of policy solutions is aggravated by its lack of a positive contribution to our country's political discourse.

You can't persuade people to see your point of view when all you have to say is, "NO," "HELL NO," and "WHERE'S THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE????"
