Buyer's Remorse? Republican Fundraising, Poll Numbers Dip
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.
