Another winning issue for Democrats
From The Hill. Who is to blame for rising gas prices? Most blame the oil industry, not President Obama.
Americans blame oil companies and market speculators far more than the
White House or the GOP for high prices at the gasoline pump, according
to a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll released Monday.
The results — which also show that 77 percent believe oil companies are making too much profit — could indicate a political tailwind for Democratic legislative and messaging efforts that have focused on bashing “Big Oil” and alleging speculators are feeding higher pump prices.
