"A new Pew Research poll shows Americans perceive Democrats as more willing to work with the other party than Republicans, by a margin of 52% to 27%."
How's that "outreach" working for ya?

63% of Americans have little or no confidence in the president's decision making.
48% of Americans view the president as untrustworthy.
52% of Americans don't believe the president understands the problems they are facing.
51% of Americans don't view the president as a strong leader.
From the latest WAPO/ABC poll
How's that hope and change workin' for ya?
BTW, Republicans are looking good in house and senate races. Republicans could see double digit gains in the house and a 5-7 seat gain in the senate.

That same poll YOU cited, cruzo...
showed that 80% of Americans have no confidence in Republicans.

And yet Republicans are polling better in races so far.
Which tells you a lot about the shape of the Democrat party.
Image if, and that's a big IF, Republicans run strong candidates, smart campaigns and get their voters out.
Look out in the ocean, Is there a wave coming?

cruzo. How clueless are you?
There's been plenty of talk here -- as well as around the media -- about how Congressional races are pretty much gerrymandered into a stalemate for control of the House this year.
However, the races for Senate are far closer and Democrats won the popular vote overwhelmingly among total votes cast in the last election for the House, Senate and White House.
And now, this Pew survey backs up the declining numbers of people who consider themselves Republican by pointing out how the GOP is seen as extreme.
Look at it this way -- the GOP won! They're the most extreme, they're the most extreme!
So, again, how's that outreach working our for you?

"Is there a wave coming?"
A Romney Landslide of a wave, headed right for us.
A Sarah (It's Over!) Palin wave.
An Obamacare is DOA wave.
This wave is indubitably egregious.

"pointing out how the GOP is seen as extreme"
That is a function of the constant harangue of the media.
Joseph Goebbels said if you tell a lie big enough and repeat it often enough it becomes true...at least, it becomes the public's perception. And the media's corps of far left attack dogs have been repeating the same lies for years. It's bound to show up in how the public views conservatives...which is precisely the left's intent.

cruzo just gave away his strategy....
repeating lies until someone believes him.
It just hasn't worked yet.
Sorry, cruzo. Citing an actual survey and gave you a source to it.
But, go ahead. Make something up. Tell us an unsubstantiated opinion -- you know, a LIE. Keep telling it. You apparently had a great teacher!

Have you checked the generic congressional data...
It's flipped in favor of Democrats.
And who believes polls, right, con? I mean they all had Obama winning re-election in 2012.
That Mitt Romney landslide sure proved them wrong!
