Rasmussen – 49% Blame Bad Economy on Bush’s Recession, 44% on Obama’s Policies

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

That’s the narrowest the blame gap has been since October of last year. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Last month, 54% blamed the economy on the Bush years, while 39% said Obama was to blame….

Voters not affiliated with either of the major political parties are evenly divided when asked which presidency is more to blame for the current bad economy.

Most men blame Obama’s policies, while most women blame the recession that began under Bush. Voters under 40 tend to see Bush’s recession as more to blame, while their elders are more inclined to think Obama’s policies are at fault.

Rasmussen Generic Congressional Ballot: Republicans 43%, Democrats 38%

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

Democrats enjoyed a seven-point lead on the Generic Ballot – 42% to 35% – when Barack Obama took office as president in late January 2009, but their support has generally remained in the mid- to upper 30s since June of that year. Republicans began to close the gap following the stimulus debate in February 2009.
Republicans lead by 14 points among men but trail by four among women. Democrats lead among voters under 40, while Republicans have the edge among older voters. Republicans hold a 36% to 24% lead among voters not affiliated with either of the major parties, but 40% of that group remains either undecided or leans towards a third-party candidate.
