The Democratic Party's edge over the GOP on who the public trusts more on ethics and corruption issues has flipped in the wake of the IRS and Benghazi scandals, according to Rasmussen Reports.


washingtonexaminer.com...

Now you know why those scandals were pushed back to after the election.

The Democrats lost an 8 point advantage wonder how that translates in to future politics.

Midterms are not to far away, and two years later 2016 is a long time in political years.

A poll is a poll is a poll 39% for Republicans, 37% for Democrat's but never forget they are politicians!

Trust neither.

Every time public trust shifts from one wing to another, all I see are people running into the arms of the people they just ran away from. Over and over and over again.

Republican or Democrat, doesn't matter. If you voted for Bush, you got a mess. If you voted for Obama, you are getting a train wreak. I think the people behind the scene are all the same people, that way they don't care who you vote for, they get who they want, and the voters become more divided about issues they ( the puppets and puppeteers) really don't care about, in the first place.

You know you're in trouble when a poll shows favorability to a body whose approval rating is a whopping 22%... although I'd trust Rasmussan about as much as I can throw them..

Well, the people are starting to figure out that both "scandals" were completely manufactured by the GOP. So, it's going to turn into fodder for the next election. The GOP will of course run with these scandals. And the Democrats are going to turn around and completely debunk them both.

As it turns out, the IRS Scandal was a setup by TEA Party groups who didn't even need to file 501c tax waiver permission forms in the first place (if you legally form a 501c, there's no need to ask the IRS permission to be tax exempt under the 501c tax exemption). The IRS did go overboard, in investigating these groups, but in my opinion the TEA Party brought it on themselves.

As for Benghazi, it's a completely manufactured "scandal" the GOP is using a tragedy for political ends.

Even bother reading the op?

Doesn't sound like it

Feel free to ignore this too.

hotair.com...

Oh and completely ignore this as well


But a CNN/ORC International survey released Sunday morning also indicates that congressional Republicans are not overplaying their hand when it comes to their reaction to the three controversies that have consumed the nation's capital over the past week and a half. And the poll finds that a majority of Americans take all three issues seriously.


politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com...

The only thing that is 'manufactured' is the administration and his supporters pointing the finger at the GOP as a deflection tactic.

I am glad they are taking these scandals seriously. Thorough examination will reveal the truth.

Conservatives aren't good with the truth *cough*birthers*cough* (sorry, something got caught in my keyboard)

Just saying, the amount of complete bull conservatives have thrown at this president, they have an uphill battle regaining any real credibility.

While it is true that neither party is shining right now, continued stonewalling and aiding and abetting this administration will eventually doom the democrat party.

The mid-terms should be interesting.

Even Nate Silver is saying the absolute the best the democrats can hope for is to not lose any seats.

Midterms are usually horrible for the party who has the presidency so given these recent scandels I imagine it will be a trouncing.

People always need an idol to adore (Leaders), so regardless of the dirty that wanders within the political parties people always tend to find something to rely on, (another idol).

Public trust this days should be on none, aobviousvious that what we call this days as politicians are nothing but crap.

I want to agree I really do, the 'party' will go on, but it is we who are doomed.

We are not doomed.

Politics is far better today than it has been in the past.

If we made it through our history then what we are seeing today is a cakewalk.

Oh I think we're totally screwed. It'll be interesting on who is driving the bus over the cliff when it happens, though.

RealClearPolitics Compendium of Polls

Way to Cherry pick there........Take a look at ALL the polls, much more a mixed bag.

About the only thing that is consistent is that about 60% of the Country thinks we are on the Wrong Track as to the Direction of our Country. That doesn't bode well for either Party.

Sorry. Not buying it. Yeah, this latest round involves a Democratic administration but so what? Same crowd as the Republicans. They are the same species.

I know we have a lot of supporters of both teams here and I mean no offense. I simply do not see any difference. Just a bunch of self serving, non-trustworthy, cowardly, duds.

They can't help it though. DC and our system seems to flush these types to places of power and money.
