New Rasmussen Poll - Obama Leads As Partisan Hack.

Doh! (Insert Homer Simpson head-slap here)

Courtesy of, results from latest Rasmussen poll gives us a more acute perception of the obvious - people are angry at government and are ready to do something about it...

On President Obama: Only 28 percent of voters questioned said that Obama is governing on a bipartisan basis, tying the lowest levels measured from last month, with 16 percent not sure. 

-- 53 percent of likely voters are “somewhat concerned” that those opposed to Obama’s policies will resort to violence, while 42 percent do not share that concern.  
-- To no one’s surprise, Republicans were twice as likely as Democrats to say the president is governing on a partisan basis. But 50 percent of voters with no party affiliation said they believe Obama is governing as a partisan Democrat, while 31 percent believe he is not. 

On Congress: Following the health-care vote, 63 percent of all voters see Democrats in Congress as partisan, down three points from last month, while 22 percent see them as bipartisan, up seven points since February. 

--78 percent of Republicans and 64 percent of unaffiliated voters see Democrats in Congress behaving in a partisan way; just 49 percent of Democratic voters agree. 
-- 56 percent of all voters say Republicans in Congress are acting in a partisan fashion, up two points from last month. Only 22 percent say congressional Republicans are acting on a bipartisan basis and 22 percent were undecided. 
-- 60 percent of Democratic voters say Republicans in Congress are acting like partisan Republicans, up two points from last month, while 53 percent of GOP voters and 54 percent unaffiliated agree. 

On Washington and the federal government: Perhaps the most startling finding in the survey is that 70 percent of voters say they are angry with the policies of the federal government, with 48 percent saying they are “very angry.”
