Voters aren’t very smart. Never have been. That’s why dimwits such as George W. Bush get to become Commander in Chief. Read the article if you are one of these voters, and learn something new about gas prices.
In a blow to the claims made by the Republican Party (i.e. that Obama is responsible for high gas prices), the Associated Press reports today (March 10, 2012) that “Despite Romney’s assertions, economists say there’s not much a president of either party could do about gasoline prices. The current increases at the pump have been driven by fears of a war with oil-rich Iran and by higher demand in the U.S. as well as in China, India and other growing nations.”
Washington Post (March 9th,2012):
When a Wall Street Journal-NBC News survey asked in the summer which party should control Congress, 46 percent favored Democrats and 42 percent preferred Republican control.
But in a survey released Monday, compiling data since the beginning of the year, that figure had widened considerably to a 15-point advantage for the Democrats, according to polling by the team of Democratic pollster Peter Hart and Republican Bill McInturff.
