Huge Jump in Those Blaming Bad Economy on Obama

How many times in the past three years have you heard Obama blame the economic disaster on his predecessor George W. Bush (while continuing to increase deficit spending more per year than Bush did)? Well, Americans are beginning to see through the smoke and mirrors, according to these Rasmussen Reports numbers:


More voters are putting the blame on President Obama's policies when it comes to today's still-struggling economy.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows that 48% still place more blame on the economic recession that began under President George W. Bush, but that ties the lowest finding in nearly three years of tracking. Now, nearly as many (46%) say the current president's policies are more to blame, the highest finding since August 2010.

"Future surveys will show whether this month's results indicate a shift in blame or are just statistical noise," Rasmussen says in its report.

Rasmussen Reports says this was markedly different from the Obama-presidency high of 58% that blamed Bush last month.

Even more interesting? While a plurality of non-affiliated voters still blamed Bush, unions were divided almost 50-50 on who to blame more, with the favorable edge actually going to Bush.
