Voters Now Trust Republicans More than Democrats on Economic Issues

From the Rasmussen Reports pollsters:

Voters now trust Republicans more than on six out of 10 key issues, including the top issue of the economy.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 45% now trust the GOP more to handle economic issues, while 39% trust Democrats more.

Rasmussen has also found that unaffiliated voters favor the GOP in economic matters by a margin of 2 to 1, and that this issue remains on the top of voters’ list of important political topics. Republicans also fare better among voters in terms of government ethics and corruption, national security, the War in Iraq, immigration, and taxes. Democrats retain a lead on social issues, namely health care, Social Security; and education, and the major parties are tied among voters on abortion.
