Rasmussen Poll: Voter Mood Swinging Away From Left

According to Rasmussen Reports, the Democrats are still winning the "trust" war with voters. However, this trust is slipping away from them, and moving back towards the Republicans little-by-little.

On 10 major issues, Democrats are more trusted by Republicans on 7 of those issues (Gov't Ethics/Corruption, Economy, Health Care, Social Security, Education, Iraq, Immigration). Republicans are more trusted on the other 3 issues (National Security, Taxes, Abortion).

However, just a month ago, Democrats held an advantage on 9 out of 10 issues.

Also, the favorable margins Democrats once held in many areas are shrinking fast. For example, in September, Dems held a 16% advantage on the issue of Health Care. In October, it was a 21% advantage. This month, that advantage is down to 8%.

Dems went from an 8% advantage on the issue of abortion to a 1% disadvantage from October to November. They also went from a 13% advantage on the issue of Education to a 2% advantage.

Could it be that the Demcratic Party's wave has already crested and crashed? If this trend continues, it spells better hope and prospects for next year's elections.
