For all the universal badmouthing in the media (because Obama sez so), voters seem to disagree

A majority of voters (52%) favor John McCain’s plan for the federal government to buy up distressed mortgages and refinance them so homeowners can stay in their homes, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Thirty-five percent (35%) oppose the plan.

And, what is even more interesting

Democrats like McCain’s plan more than Republicans, even though Barack Obama opposes it. Fifty-nine percent (59%) of Democratic voters think it’s a good idea, compared to 47% of Republicans – and 49% of unaffiliated voters.

Seventy percent (70%) of African-American voters favor McCain’s plan, as do 50% of white voters.

And even more fascinating

Not surprisingly, support for McCain’s plan is highest among those in lower income groups.

Since it’s  been brought up, Hillary joined the nay sayers group, shilling for Obama

Mrs. Clinton’s office called that claim “offensive,” and said her proposal, which she detailed last month on the Senate floor, was different.

For this, Hillary, I decided: McCain does get my vote. All this lying from the Democrats made me nauseaous.

For the record, Obama first took credit for Hillary’s plan then stubbornly opposed this, not offering anything. Shame!
