I say why I “would” vote Democrat, because, well, I’m a Canuck. So moot to making a difference in US politics. Still though, the observations gleaned from these charts from a recent national pre-election survey of over 14,000 likely voters are very telling, albeit none surprising, to Democrats and liberals in general and only further confirm the fact that progressives tend to have both our hearts and minds in the right place, especially compared to the self-serving elitists of the Right.
Who is most responsible for the current economic slump?
This is almost hilariously predictable. Of course, Republicans would rather eat their own children than admit that President Obama couldn’t possibly be blamed for the fact that the economy crashed and burned before he even took fucking office and that the real culprits are the endlessly reckless, greedy and dishonest banks and wealthy jackals whose asses they just can’t stop kissing.
I would consider voting for a Tea Party endorsed candidate
Given the nature and beliefs of the current horde of Tea Party-backed candidates – in their own words – the fact that they actually fare a decent chance of being sworn into office is a terrifying fact in and of itself.
I want to see the Healthcare Reform Bill repealed
Because Republicans hate poor, sick people who just drag down the workforce and economy and all those rich people they love so much. I’d love to say that that’s just a simplistic distortion, and it may still be to a point, but no rational person can possibly examine their legislative track records and come out believing otherwise.
