Foreseeing the Fall Campaign after reading the Democracy Corps Poll

The Democracy Corps poll makes it clear that the only theme that Democrats will have this fall is to bash Bush.

1) Republicans must explain exactly how Obama's economic plans have made things worse. Obviously some have been doing this with the regulatory and tax uncertainty. But more can be done regarding the impact that the stimulus directly had on short term unemployment by moving resources from some areas of the economy to others. The unemployment insurance extension also caused problems and now the termination of that extension will make the unemployment rate improve and will be used by Obama to claim that his policies have worked.

2) Someone must explain that people's perceptions are based in part on media bias.

Excellent abstract gentlemen, but when will we see the actual paper itself?

I myself am rather curious as to the outcome of the study itself.
