The March Rasmussen Trust Numbers.

Short version: nine out of ten, and the word ‘Pyrrhic’ seems ever-more appropriate when discussing the Democrats’ health care monstrosity.

Mar-10 Feb-10
Issue Dem GOP Diff Dem GOP Diff Shift
Health Care 37% 53% (16) 42% 45% (3) (13)
Education 40% 43% (3) 41% 38% 3 (6)
Social Security 36% 48% (12) 39% 42% (3) (9)
Abortion 32% 47% (15) 38% 42% (4) (11)
Economy 37% 49% (12) 41% 46% (5) (7)
Taxes 34% 52% (18) 37% 48% (11) (7)
Iraq 39% 47% (8) 38% 42% (4) (4)
Nat’l Security 36% 51% (15) 37% 47% (10) (5)
Gov’t Ethics 35% 33% 2 35% 28% 7 (5)
Immigration 34% 47% (13) 34% 39% (5) (8)

Contra the first paragraph of the Rasmussen article (I think that it was just a cut-and-paste mistake), the Democrats did not improve their position in several areas in comparison to last month; in fact, they didn’t improve at all. Even the bane-of-our-existence Government Ethics number reflects a five point shift in favor of the GOP. The Democrats will no doubt worry about their bad Health Care numbers; they should be worrying more about Taxes, The Economy, and Immigration. All three of these are going to be big issues in the summer…
