The November Rasmussen Public Trust Numbers.

I had actually put this together on Sunday, but: well, new baby. Rasmussen’s new trust numbers are out. The short version is: eight for ten for the GOP, and the Democrats’ free-fall from last month have been mostly reset back to September’s numbers

Nov-09 Oct-09
Issue Dem GOP Diff Dem GOP Diff Shift
Health Care 42% 44% (2) 40% 46% (6) 4
Education 41% 39% 2 38% 43% (5) 7
Social Security 41% 41% 37% 45% (8) 8
Abortion 38% 43% (5) 35% 47% (12) 7
Economy 36% 48% (12) 35% 49% (14) 2
Taxes 36% 47% (11) 35% 50% (15) 4
Iraq 38% 45% (7) 31% 50% (19) 12
Nat’l Security 37% 50% (13) 31% 54% (23) 10
Gov’t Ethics 31% 34% (3) 29% 33% (4) 1
Immigration 33% 45% (12) 33% 40% (7) (5)

And, on reflection: there’s not much to say about this, except that it’s amazing how quickly a new equilibrium can form in politics. Last year the GOP was trying to get itself more trusted on one out of ten, let alone eight…
