64% and 80%? Wow. But you have to wonder, how many of these people voted Teapublican in the mid-terms?

buyers’ remorse …. use your brains next time, folks

Public Policy Polling: PPP’s newest national poll finds that after a little more than 3 months in charge House Republicans have fallen so far out of favor with the American public that it’s entirely possible Democrats could take control of the House back next year.

43% of voters think that House Republicans are doing a worse job now than the Democrats did, compared to only 36% who think the GOP has brought an improvement. 19% think things are about the same. 62% of voters thinking that the Republicans have either made things worse or brought no improvement to an already unpopular Congress does not bode particularly well for the party.

46% of voters say that if there was an election for Congress today they would vote Democratic, compared to only 41% who would vote Republican. That five point advantage for Democrats is only a hair below the margin Republicans won by in the national popular vote last year. A victory of that magnitude for the Democrats next year would at the very least result in the party taking back a large number of the seats it lost last year, and it could be enough to take back the outright majority…

….These poll numbers also point to the reality that Republicans taking control of the House may have been one of the best things that could possibly have happened for Obama’s reelection prospects … voters may not love Obama as once they did but they’re finding him to be more reasonable than the alternative and that means it will be hard for the GOP to knock him off next year without a top notch nominee.

One thing is very much for certain – it’s not 2010 anymore.

Political Wire: … Stunningly, independent voters now say they’d vote Democratic for the House by a 42% to 33% margin, representing a 28 point reversal in a span of just five months.

even more buyers’ remorse

TPM: According to results of Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday morning … a 48% plurality of registered voters now disapprove of how Gov. Rick Scott has handled his job, a huge leap from February when only 22% of voters disapproved of the new Governor’s job performance. Meanwhile, 35% of voters currently approve of Scott’s job performance, the exact same percentage who gave Scott a thumbs up two months ago.

Scott, who was elected by a razor-thin one-point margin last year, has seen his support quickly erode as he’s pursued a number of highly contentious proposals, such as eliminating tenure for new teachers, and tying future pay to teachers’ performance. In the poll, 57% of respondents disapproved of Scott’s push for a merit pay system, compared to 39% who approved.

Further, a strong 55% majority disapproved of how Scott has handled the state’s budget overall, versus just 36% who approved.

Scott is one of several freshmen GOP governors who have rapidly fallen from favor since assuming office. Polls have shown Scott, along with Wisconsin’s Scott Walker, Michigan’s Rick Snyder, and Ohio’s John Kasich, all losing hypothetical do-over contests against the Democrats they topped in last year’s elections. In Scott’s case, a PPP poll showed him losing to Alex Sink by a resounding 20-point margin.
