Good Grief: PPP Now Polling on How Romney Treats Dogs

Posted by on Mar 20, 2012 at 3:34 pm

You’ve got to be kidding me. They’re still talking about this dog story? And taking polls about it?

There is growing talk about Mitt Romney’s “dog problem.” Before the issue was specified in the poll, only 20% of voters said they had a favorable opinion of Romney’s treatment of dogs; 29% said unfavorable. That compares to the president’s 44-14 spread on the issue. Even Republicans only think their nomination frontrunner is kind to man’s best friend by a 26-14 margin, while Democrats give the president’s puppy friendliness a 66-7 nod. 37% say Obama would be a better president for dogs, while 21% choose Romney. 16% of Republicans cross over for Obama on this issue, versus only 11% of Democrats for Romney. Independents go 38-14 for the president.

The generic description of what Romney did to Seamus, his Irish Setter, is seen as humane by only 14% of Americans and as inhumane by 68%. There is tripartisan agreement on that front—74% of Democrats, 66% of independents, and 63% of the GOP.

What’s inhumane is saddling Americans with record debt in record time.

    If we weren’t the AStupid party, we’d be hammering these leftists idiots with this. We know the top ten concerns that Americans have. And yet……This is what dems want to talk about, and it’s what they want voters to focus on. But since we just set a record for gas prices in March, this ain’t too surprising.
