Skip to comments.Gallup: Voters Overwhelmingly Want GOP in Charge of 'Most Important Problems,' Reject Democrat Policies

While most politicians, media outlets, talking heads, and political pundits eagerly jump all over the latest poll results about whatever or whomever, most polls are simply snapshots in time (popularity contests, as it were), while some polls lay bare deep-seated trends, good or bad, depending on one's views.
The results of a new poll from Gallup reveal a perfect example of the latter.
After more than 32 months of Joe Biden's presidency — arguably the worst presidency in at least modern history — likely voters across the board continue to reject Biden's policies, and the objectives of a Democrat Party that bears little resemblance, if any, to moderate Democrat lawmakers of the past.
According to Gallup, while the Democrat Party and Republican Party are equally disliked by a majority of Americans, voters strongly believe the GOP is more likely to better safeguard the U.S. economy, national security, and generically, the country's “most important problem."
On the question of which party is better able to handle the most important issue, Gallup said:
The recent poll ... finds the Republican Party leading the Democrats as the party more Americans choose as better able to handle whatever problem they name as the most important facing the country. Forty-four percent say the Republican Party is better, while 36% name the Democratic Party and the rest say the parties are the same or have no preference. This is at a time when the economy, government/poor leadership, and immigration lead Americans’ open-ended responses when asked to name the most important problem facing the country.
The poll found that more than eight in 10 Americans disapprove of the job the politically divided Congress is doing — which historically isn't exactly "Breaking News" — but nearly six in 10 disapprove of Biden's job performance, and nearly three-quarters are pessimistic about the direction of the Biden economy.
The Republicans’ 14-point lead, with respect to ensuring that the country remains prosperous, is up from a 10-point margin in 2022 — and the widest margin since 1991.
Additionally, Americans overwhelmingly believe — by a 22-percent margin — that the GOP is more likely to protect the country from foreign military threats and international terrorism.
Is there any doubt? Particularly with respect to the threat of international terrorism, given the Biden Border Crisis and the ever-increasing number of illegal border-crossers from around the world.
As I analyzed the results of the poll, I thought about the golden opportunity for the GOP, seemingly there for the taking, as Joe Biden and Democrats continue their damnedest to all but hand the 2024 general election to the Republicans on a silver platter.
If there's ever been a better time for the Republican Party to avoid snatching defeat from the jaws of victory than in 2024, I'm unaware of when it was — so let's don't screw it up.
While I can’t speak for the Republican Party, I do know that Trump won’t go around trying to start wars with Russia and China, and that’s good enough for me.
Does it matter? Who’s in charge no and who has the upper hand? Do you expect an election to change it?
Yes. I sincerely believe things were much better with Trump than Biden.
We’ll see Nov 2024 how much they want that.
The Deep State/NeoCons are ruling us. Hopefully, they can be removed from power. Only Trump is willing to try.
You have to be an IDIOT to vote for democrats.
The DEAD still VOTE for Democrats!!
The only way to Make America Great Again is to deport all the far left, turd rolling Democrats and make them take their “democrazy” with them.
And yet, if the election was held tomorrow, every race that was 'statistically too close to call' would go to democrats. Not that democrats have been doing voter fraud for decades or anything - because to 'speak' that opinion gets you on the DOJ, FBI and Homeland lists... the same lists we were all put on when we said the virus came out of a lab in Wuhan. Eff YOU Garland and President Sniffer.
“Does it matter? Who’s in charge no and who has the upper hand? Do you expect an election to change it?”
Yep, if Trump wins.
(suppression doesn’t work with me)
republicans in congress are spineless and get rolled by the Democrats even when in the majority.
This is the reason for lawsuit after lawsuit and criminal charge after criminal charge.
Historic opportunity to shift the course of government from hellbent leftism. But the security state wants an R who won’t shift the course of government. Hence the insane attacks on Trump.
It always sounds promising, but too many of them vote for the “free” stuff on election day.
“The only way to Make America Great Again is to deport all the far left, turd rolling Democrats and make them take their “democrazy” with them.”
The kinder, gentler Pinochet solution?
But but muh abortions!
I was going to type something about this. Rich, white women don’t give a crap about the economy. They are only interested in taking the unborn (and possibly born) at will.
Having the unfettered ability to abort a child, unfortunately, is more important to them than national security, the economy, illegal aliens, and infrastructure combined.
If it makes them feel any better, we'll use electric helicopters to throw them out.
The rich white women who fall into this group, live in a fantasy world where the United States always be the land of plenty. They take that for granted. They have no sense of history.
