Congratulations Republicans, your push to get the most uneducated and uninformed voter is working. These are your people.
According to the latest PPP poll, 29% of republicans polled felt Obama was more responsible than Bush for the poor response to Katrina and 44% were not sure. Only 28% properly identified Bush as the president who failed to adequately respond to the crisis. Thanks Obama!
The latest survey from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling, provided exclusively to TPM, showed an eye-popping divide among Republicans in the Bayou State when it comes to accountability for the government’s post-Katrina blunders.
Twenty-eight percent said they think former President George W. Bush, who was in office at the time, was more responsible for the poor federal response while 29 percent said Obama, who was still a freshman U.S. Senator when the storm battered the Gulf Coast in 2005, was more responsible. Nearly half of Louisiana Republicans — 44 percent — said they aren’t sure who to blame.
