Heartbreak for Chuck Schumer: 50% of voters think the Democrats’ agenda is too extreme

by editor on April 6, 2011

Last week Chuck Schumer trotted out the results of the Democrats’ latest focus group and ordered his party’s other senators to begin calling the Republican agenda “extreme” in every other sentence. Now we know why.

Rasmussen has the bad news for Schumer:


We would imagine that 50% of likely voters also consider Schumer to be a complete schmuck

Voters continue to view the Republican agenda in Congress as more mainstream than the agenda of the Democrats. But only one-in-four voters think the average member of either party shares the same ideology they do.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows that 45% say it would be more accurate to describe the agenda of Republicans in Congress as mainstream, up five points from last month. Thirty-eight percent (38%) say it’s more accurate to describe that agenda as extreme, while 17% more are undecided.

But half of voters (50%) say the Democratic agenda in Congress is extreme, while 37% see it as mainstream, also up five points from a month ago. Another 14% are not sure.

Surely Schumer finds these results disappointing in the extreme.

God, I love the Evilcrats…err, the Democrats ! ! !

Especially since they Jacked the taxes on my TOBACCO up 2000% (Two Thousand Percent) back in 2009 ! ! ! ! !
That on top of all the other MASSIVE taxes that were already on them before and even more increases in the past 2 years (since 2009) as well.

What I want to know is WHEN—–???— when are the the $hitpublicans going to turn back the evil and unconstitutional laws passed by the Evilcrat Party ? ? ?

Big Smiles, Chuckles…….Big Smiles ! ! ! ! All you Democrappers take care not to let the screen door hit you in the a$$ on the way out.

ps. Excuse my french….sometimes I get a little carried away. Sorry, my nicotine levels are running low & I tend to want to drive incumbent politicians out of office when that happens.

pps. When are we going to see the Congressional hearings on that Birth Certitificate and the fraudulent Social Security Number Barry is using. The Social Security Number fraud is classified as Identity Theft isn’t it? A FELONY CRIME.


RIP got it right! Gov’t demonizes, fines and taxes the hell out of tobacco industry and users. I don’t think you’re allowed to have a smoking only bar/restaurant in NYC. But…. think how much our leaders would scream if the smokers and tobacco companies said ” You’re right! You win. We give up. We quit. No more smoking at all. No tobacco in the USA. And more NO MORE TAX $$$$$ AT ALL!!!!!!” The folks in Washington DC would be sick panicking… “Where are we going to get all that lost tax money from???”
P.S. I don’t smoke. Never have.


How dense must one be to not have an opinion in such a poll?
