Most interesting story: Republicans like themselves better than Democrats

See also

USA Today has the most interesting “politics” story, reporting Pew Research results that say this:

  1. More voters would vote Democrat over Republicans
  2. Republicans like their candidates more than Democrats do

After that, analysts speculate. Could a really likeable Republican candidate attract Democrat voters?

Can Obama have a resurgence in popularity, after messing with people’s health insurance? Would that have a halo effect on Democrats running for reelection?

Here is an observation, conservatives are looking so bad that they are making John Boehner look good.

Here is another one, Democrats are beginning to rally around Healthcare.gov. Well, why should they not do that if it is working?

Governor Walker from Wisconsin is touting an alternative to Obamacare’s centralized Insurance Marketplace.

“He is floating a proposal that would still channel federal subsidies to Wisconsin’s poor and uninsured, but his plan would allow them to purchase coverage directly from the insurer and sidestep the on-line ‘exchange’ created by the Affordable Care Act.”

Hmm, sounds like a good idea. The trouble with Walker is that he has flaky credentials and qualifications. People need to dig deeper around his ideas because he lacks depth.

“Poll: Low ratings, high expectations for GOP in 2014

On the other hand, Republicans are more optimistic about how their party will fare
