And Republicans should not let them. Quoting Byron York:
Dissatisfaction with Barack Obama will play a role in November. A president’s job approval rating is a key factor in midterm results, and Obama’s now stands at just under 42 percent in the RealClearPolitics average of polls. But voters know why they’re unhappy with the president. They’d be more likely to vote for Republicans if they felt GOP candidates had a clear plan to address the problems, especially the economic woes, that still beset millions of Americans.
Exactly right. Of course, given the ratiocination skills–or lack thereof–of key segments of the congressional Republican caucus, it would not surprise me in the least if the GOP rejected York’s sage and excellent advice in a fit of electoral dyspepsia.
