Voters Now Trust Republicans More than Democrats on Economic Issues

From Rasmussen Reports:

Voters now trust Republicans more than Democrats 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.

This is the first time in over two years of polling that the GOP has held the advantage on this issue.

...

Voters not affiliated with either party now trust the GOP more to handle economic issues by a two-to-one margin.

Separate Rasmussen tracking shows that the economy remains the top issue among voters in terms of importance.

Republicans also now hold a six-point lead on the issue of government ethics and corruption, the second most important issue to all voters and the top issue among unaffiliated voters. That shows a large shift from May, when Democrats held an 11-point lead on the issue.

...

For the eighth straight month, Republicans lead on national security. The GOP now holds a 51% to 36% lead on the issue, up from a seven-point lead in May. They also lead on the war in Iraq 45% to 37%, after leading by just two points in May and trailing the Democrats in April.

...

Republicans lead the Democrats on immigration for the third straight month, pulling ahead to a 35% to 29% advantage on the issue.

On taxes, the GOP leads the Democrats for the fifth straight month, 44% to 39%.

BNP wins European Parliament seat

Story here.

From the article:

The BNP has won its first MEP in what is shaping up to be an historic defeat for Labour in the European elections.

...

Labour could be on course to dip below 20% of the vote ...

[Labour] lost 12% of its vote in Wales, where they were beaten by the Tories first time since 1918.

The BNP won its first MEP, Andrew Brons, after gaining more than 120,000 votes in the Yorkshire and Humber region.

...

The Conservatives won easily in the East of England, although their share of the vote remained roughly the same as in 2004 - as did that of UKIP, which came second and the Lib Dems, who came third.

...

Elsewhere, in the South East, with half the votes counted, Labour was trailing in fifth place behind the Greens, with Ukip in second place behind the Tories and the Lib Dems in third.

In Scotland, the Nationalists were outpolling Labour by a clear margin in the early results.

LOL @ Gordon Brown.
