Poll: 54 Percent Blame Bush And GOP For Economic Woes


More than half of voters nationwide attribute the country’s current economic problems to former President George W. Bush and Republicans as opposed to President Barack Obama and the Democrats, a new poll released Thursday shows.

The latest release from CNN shows that 54 percent of likely voters think Bush and his Republican colleagues are more to blame for the still-sluggish national economy, compared with 38 percent who blame Obama and the Democrats.  

It should be noted that this is not a new trend.  CNN has found that at least 50 percent of Americans pin the lion’s share of the blame for nation’s economic woes on Bush and the GOP dating back to September of 2010.
