President Obama’s approval rating has fallen to 47 percent, and the GOP has taken a small 1 percent lead in the Generic Congressional Ballot. Interestingly, and perhaps even more importantly, the GOP is now trusted more on the issue of government ethics and corruption.
The Democrats for quite some time have been trusted more on the issue of ethics and corruption; but, now the GOP has pulled slightly ahead 39 – 37 percent. Although the lead is small, it is an issue that the GOP has sorely lagged behind the Democrats. The IRS scandal has consistently been the scandal that appalls the American people the most, and no doubt, the liberal philosophy of Big Government is apparently becoming a liability. If it will remain a liability, is yet to be determined.
