Hope: 55% Think Obama a Big-spending Socialist

H/T: Hot Air

James Carville's latest poll is chock full of bad news for Democrats and Barack Obama in particular.  Not only does the poll show Obama's approval underwater with 45% of likely voters approving while 51% disapprove, the poll shows a strong majority describing Obama as a big-spending socialist:

While a clear majority of respondents believe it was Bush economic policies that led to our current economic troubles, 50% also believe "President Obama's economic policies have run up a record federal deficit while failing to end the recession or slow the record pace of job losses." Voters were split when asked to decide whether "Obama and the Democrats are more concerned with creating jobs for ordinary Americans," or "Obama and the Democrats are more concerned with bailing out Wall Street." A full 50% of likely voters chose cutting government spending and cutting taxes as the best way to create jobs and improve the economy.

Congressional Democrats were again behind in a Congressional ballot question among all respondents and to a greater degree with likely voters:

Total Democratic candidate.........................................43 42
Total Republican candidate.........................................46 48

Negative feelings toward the Congressional Democrats can be explained by looking at a break-down of negative feelings about Obama. It's the policies, namely health care and fiscal irresponsibility they dislike:

Let's face it, when they've lost Barbara Streisand it's time for Democrats to rethink the big spending socialist policies agenda that has proven to fail in Europe.  The handwriting has been on the wall for a long time now though and Democrats have ignored every warning   Democrats appear poised to reap what they have sown in November.
