Majority Blame Bush for the Bad Economy
As Romney continues to pound Obama on the weak economy, a new poll offers Obama a potential escape: blame it on Bush. A new Gallup poll
shows that 68% of Americans place the blame for the economy's ills on former President George W. Bush, rather than Obama. Even among Republicans, 49% blame Bush.
With this finding, it may be a bit harder for Romney to base his campaign on the idea that Obama wrecked the economy. Of course, he can avoid going on the attack and focus on who would be better at fixing it, although this approach is likely to bring up how well he did as governor of Massachusetts, which was 47th in the country in job creation during his tenure.
Seems like most Americans are smarter than some give them credit for- the majority (even half the Republicans) know and admit who brought on the Bush Bust and are not forgetting it...
