Poll: Republicans Leading on the Economy, Foreign Policy, and the Deficit Andrew Clark | September 13th, 2013
The week is ending on a bad note for Barack Obama’s White House and his liberal allies.
A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Friday morning found that 52% of Americans continue to disapprove of the way President Obama is handling the economy.
The poll also found that Republicans have an edge over Democrats over who could handle the economy better, and that by a 2-1 margin, voters oppose increasing the debt ceiling.
“Republicans are now leading Democrats on handling several key issues, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC poll.
“The poll, released Friday, shows more Americans think that the Republicans are doing a better job on the economy, foreign policy and reducing the federal deficit.
“The GOP has an edge of 7 percentage points over the Democrats on the issue of foreign policy. This is up from 2006, when the GOP was behind by 9 percentage points.”
While the Democrats continue their uninterrupted march of defending ObamaCare, raising taxes, and increasing spending, it’s no wonder that Americans across the country are souring on their agenda and looking towards Republicans to put America on a pro-growth path.
