Rasmussen: 73 percent say GOP leaders have lost touch with Republican base?

Conservatives, would you agree?
President Obama told an audience at a Democratic Party fundraiser Wednesday night that Republicans often “do what they’re told,” but GOP voters don’t think their legislators listen enough to them.
Just 15% of Republicans who plan to vote in 2012 state primaries say the party’s representatives in Congress have done a good job of representing Republican values.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 73% think Republicans in Congress have lost touch with GOP voters from throughout the nation. Twelve percent (12%) are undecided…
Republican women are nearly twice as likely as men to say their representatives in Congress have done a good job of representing GOP values.

  • Yes, but - I don't think that's only GOP, I think it's the whole congress. The amount of people who actually support most of the things they've done this year is very small. How many people really wanted us to be put trillions of dollars into debt to change nothing - or to bail out GM/financials? As bad as this recession is, they are still hiding every scrap of pork they can in every bill they pass, and insisting on exempting themselves from whatever healthcare monstrosity they come up with. Is there really anyone that agrees with that?
