Who’s Responsible

A CNN poll finds that Americans blame the Republicans for the current economic crisis by a 2-to-1 margin.

In a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey out Monday afternoon, 47 percent of registered voters questioned said Republicans are more responsible for the problems currently facing financial institutions and the stock market; only 24 percent said Democrats are more responsible.

Twenty percent blame both parties equally and 8 percent say neither party is to blame.

The poll also indicates more Americans think Obama, the Democratic presidential nominee, would do a better job handling an economic crisis than McCain, the Republican presidential nominee.

Now the question is whether or not they will remember this when they vote, or will there be more shiny objects to distract them?
