Democrats in Huge Trouble in Upcoming Election. GOP Likely To Win Senate Seat in Indiana

Posted by iusbvision on March 23, 2010


Rasmussen Reports has recently surveyed Senate races in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Florida, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Ohio, Oregon, Washington and Wisconsin. Most show a troubling political environment for Democrats, particularly incumbents.

Three-out-of-four voters (75%) are angry at the policies of the federal government. Part of the frustration is likely due to the belief of 60% of voters that neither Republican political leaders nor Democratic political leaders have a good understanding of what is needed today.

Just 21% believe that the federal government enjoys the consent of the governed.

Last month, voter unhappiness with Congress as a whole reached its highest level ever, with 71% saying the legislature is doing a poor job.

Rasmussen Poll from today in Indiana:

Two of the three top Republican hopefuls for the U.S. Senate in Indiana continue to hold double-digit leads over Democratic Congressman Brad Ellsworth. Ellsworth supported President Obama’s health care plan in a state where opposition to the legislation is higher than it is nationally.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state finds former Congressman John Hostettler with a 50% to 32% lead over Ellsworth, a current House member who voted with most other Democrats on Sunday to pass the health care plan. The survey was taken last Wednesday and Thursday nights. Fifteen percent (15%) remain undecided in that match-up.

Ex-Senator Dan Coats now posts a 49% to 34% lead over Ellsworth, with 12% undecided.

Ellsworth runs best against the third GOP contender, freshman State Senator Marlin Stutzman. In that match-up, Stutzman leads by just seven points, 41% to 34%. Eighteen percent (18%) are undecided.

But look at this:

When it comes to health care decisions, 55% fear the federal government more than private insurance companies. Thirty-five percent (35%) fear private insurers more.

Thirty percent (30%) of voters in Indiana rate the president’s handling of health care reform as good or excellent, but 57% think he’s done a poor job.

Sixty-two percent (62%) say a better strategy for health care reform is passing smaller bills that address individual problems rather than a comprehensive bill like the one passed by the Senate and the House. Only 24% think a comprehensive bill is better.

Fifty percent (50%) have a favorable opinion of the Tea Party movement, while just 29% view that movement unfavorably. Yet only 20% of Indiana voters say they are part of the Tea Party movement.


Translation, the leftists who have taken the Democratic Party have driven independent voters totally away and in the process have brought down Democrat voter self-identification. Considering the bogus elite media onslaught against the Tea Party movement they still poll very well. People don’t trust what former CBS News man Bernard Goldberg has now labeled “the lame-stream media”.

Get to know the candidates for the GOP Senate primary:

As for me, I know witch one I will not be voting for, but I am totally undecided about the other four.
