Public Prefers Democratic Party to Republican for Handling Terrorism, Military Security

by Pamela Leavey

The Gallup Poll shows that the “Democratic Party enjoys a 15-point lead over the Republicans in overall favorability, 53% vs. 38%”:

Since the second half of 2005, Gallup notes “the public’s positive image of the Republican Party began to show signs of decline,” and since April 2006, “the Democrats have maintained a consistently strong advantage in favorability, averaging about 14 points.”

The latest Gallup also shows that the Democratic Party holds a significant lead as the “Party of Prosperity” and now also holds a lead as the “Party of National Security.” Indeed, “Fifty-four percent of Americans now say the Democrats would do the better job,” at keeping the country prosperous as “compared with only 34% choosing the Republicans.” And, “this year, for the first time since Gallup started asking this question in 2002, more Americans say the Democratic Party will do a better job than the Republican Party of protecting the country from security threats, 47% vs. 42%.”

With the Democratic Party leading in the polls and fundraising, the vision of gaining a bigger lead in Congress in the ’08 elections and putting a Dem in the White House is clearer. There’s work to do readers…

Greg Sargent has a great analysis of the poll on The Horses Mouth.

  1. A Republican President is about to veto a health bill for children. House Republicans are set to vote to sustain that veto.

    Sort of an interesting situation, in light of those numbers.

  2. This is a letter warning you about a company you don’t want to do business with. I pray you, the recipient of this letter will pass it on to any and all corporate executives, not only your executives and management, but of any and all companies as well as individuals you encounter. This letter concerns a company called Securitas Services USA.
    In my opinion:
    Securitas, a security services provider, and many of their employees at all levels are involved in serious corruption. They are collecting social security numbers and are using the lists to help identify and locate individuals who they have identified as “left wing liberals”. It is their belief that these individuals need to be discovered and not allowed to participate in activities such as working. They hire mostly people that are friends and family, or other known “right wing” affiliated individuals known by their current employees. Those people they hire, to just fill positions, are carefully scrutinized to identify their political affiliation by the other employees of the site in which they work. When they discover one is “left wing” or democrat, they go about the process of manufacturing issues for the purpose of producing a termination. They also identify those that may have an alternate sexual orientation and put them through a similar process. It is their belief that by eliminating and destroying these individuals lives, those people wont have the funds to contribute to their political party’s campaigns, thereby effectively guaranteeing nominations for their party’s candidates.
    Sounds a little far fetched, I know, sad but true. They aren’t the only organization involved in such widespread nefarious activities either. Since the recent serious corruptions have been exposed within the Republican Party, there has been a huge movement in the community to follow suit with their party’s illegal activities. I can only attest to what is happening at Securitas, because I work there. But I know of others involved with it in other major corporations.

    Beware, God Bless
