A brand new Rasmussen Poll seems to suggests why republicans and conservatives are so frustrated, divided and rudderless. ---------- Rasmussen Question (republican voters only) WHO'S THE LEADER OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY? Republican voters responded: No Clear Leader -- 68% Undecided -- 17% John McCain -- 5% Michael Steele -- 5% Rush Limbaugh -- 2% Without a clear leader -- in fact, without any cohesive conservative message to guide and inspire, the republican and conservative posters on this site have become the equivalents of militant Iraqi suicide bombers, bombing random liberals, arbitrarily lashing out at Obama, at "socialist libtards", at polls, at the mainstream media; attributing to, and blaming Barack Obama for, every ill and disorder that afflicts the nation. The downed stock markets are Obama's fault! Creeping socialism is Obama's fault! Obama should let the banks fail! Obama has no respect for the "culture of life"! Obama "hates America" - is how callers to conservative talk radio generally describe it. Without a clear leader, posters are getting their "direction" from Sean Hannity & Rush Limbaugh. But, at heart, I know I'm being unfair. A party that is shut out of all branches of government is bound to have no clear leader. According to today's Gallup poll, the "Consumer Mood" of the country is at 2% positive (yes, 2%!). Yet Obama's approval rating is at almost 2/3rds of the electorate.
