Dem pollster warns Dems, don't talk about a Recovery
[Image: bls-emp-pop-ratio.jpg]

Democratic pollster Stanley Greenberg is out with a must-read polling memo this morning, which offers some eye-opening advice to President Obama and his re-election team. After testing several of the president's economic messages, he finds the argument that the economy is back on the right track polls miserably - and "produces disastrous results."

"It is weaker than even the weakest Republican message and is 10 points weaker in intensity than either Republican message," Greenberg wrote. "A third said this message made them less likely to support Barack Obama. Alarmingly, this message barely receives majority support among self-identified Democrats - and even less support among all other groups."

The memo reads as a glaring wake-up call to the White House, which has been trumpeting improving economic figures lately. Greenberg notes that voters are reporting "no improvement" in their job situation since last June, and have experienced reduced wages and benefits and health insurance coverage. The picture Greenberg's polling paints is an America public still deeply pessimistic about their future, and skeptical of Obama's handling of the economy.


Greenberg writes that the jury is still out on the president's overall messaging, and offered high praise for the focus on protecting the middle class - which ranked as the most effective argument the White House has made. And he noted that Republicans are performing even more abysmally, with their presidential primary battles pushing independents into the Democratic camp.

But the overarching conclusion one reaches after reading the memo is that much of the gains Obama has made in recent weeks have been at the GOP's expense, and not because voters believe he's steering the country on the right economic track.

Despite the recent Republican foray into social issues lately, this election will be fought over the economy - and which presidential candidate voters view as offering a more compelling economic vision for the future. There's a long way to go, and the stakes are high.

The US Economy usually contracts as soon as gas hits $3.75 per gallon. There should be data for 1Q 2012 that shows a significant drop. 2Q 2012 will even be worse. Lets see Obama spin this. 03-lmfao

Obama blames the rich just as the Nazis blamed the Jews.

The rich are the new Jews.

It's just rich Republicans who are bad. Rich Democrats are OK though. And there are plenty of really rich Dems just in case someone was wondering.
