Of course they do. Bush is still responsible for everything now that Obama is in the sixth year of his failed presidency. They try and dance around it, but the bad news for Obama is 64% think the economy is in poor shape.
Although nearly two-thirds of Americans still give the nation’s economy a thumbs down, the percentage who rate the current economic conditions as good now stands at its highest level in six years, according to a new national poll.
And when it comes to the economic blame game, a CNN/ORC International survey released Thursday also indicates that the percentage of people who still blame former President George W. Bush and the Republicans more than President Barack Obama and the Democrats for the country’s economic problems is dropping.
Gee, it’s a wonder 34% actually blame Obama and the Democrats considering they have 99.8% of the media parroting their propaganda. If only Fox News would get in line they’d have it all.
Five years into Obama’s presidency, only a third of the public believes that Obama and the Democrats are primarily responsible for the country’s current economic problems.
More Americans continue to blame former President Bush and the Republicans. But the number who say the GOP is more responsible – now at 44% – has dipped below the 50% mark for the first time since Bush left the White House. Fourteen percent blame both parties equally.
In that time the GOP has controlled only the House, going on four years now. But they’re to blame. Great. Since 2010 the percentage holding Democrats accountable for anything remains virtually unchanged.
