Buyer's Remorse? Republican Fundraising, Poll Numbers Dip

Share

Low fundraising totals and declining poll numbers suggest that voters are experiencing strong feelings of buyer’s remorse toward the Republican majority in Congress.

According to a USA Today report, 43 of the 65 freshman Republicans who captured Democratic-held seats in the 2010 elections saw their fundraising dip in the last quarter. Furthermore, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee enjoyed a massive fundraising surge in September, raising $6.6 million and greatly outpacing the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee, which raised only $3.8 million.

    GOP Voters in 2010 have many regrets. GOP ran on jobs but did zero for jobs. They took away workers and women’s rights.even trying to ban birth control. They vowed to break Obama even as it damages our economy. GOP chose the top 1 % over the people time and again. Wis Gov Walker got cocky & gave fat cat cuts right away.. then took away workers rights to bargain. Recalls as we speak for Gov Walker.
    Last week In Ohio Gov Kasich & Kochs millions lost big. In Mississippi
    person hood bill ‘ lost. In Kentucky we the People won again. People power works when we act, protest and speak out in mass.
