Poll Finds Republicans More Trusted On Social Security
More proof the deficit commission was a political disaster for the Obama administration. The Republican Party is now more trusted on dealing with Social Security than Barack Obama.
Who will better handle Social Security
• Republicans vs. Democrats in Congress: 31% (R) to 28% (D); 34% both the same
•Republicans in Congress vs. Obama: 33% (R) to 26% (Obama); 31% both the same
The Republican congress polls 7 percent higher than Obama. What is interesting is the poll shows even the Tea Party is against raising the retirement age. 74 percent of the Tea Party is against cutting Social Security benefits to decrease the deficit. Democrats are on the right side of the issue. However, it is obvious Obama has a perception problem on Social Security that goes beyond the Tea Party.
