Most Voters Think House GOP Likely To Disappoint By 2012

According to the Rasmussen Reports …

Hold the celebration.

Most voters expected Republicans to win control of the House of Representatives on Election Day, but nearly as many expect to be disappointed with how they perform by the time the 2012 elections roll around.

Voters certainly weren’t surprised by the outcome in the House on Election Day.

78% said it was at least somewhat likely that the GOP would win control of the House in the survey taken Monday and Tuesday night.

59% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is at least somewhat likely that most voters will be disappointed with Republicans in Congress before the next national elections.

Voters overwhelmingly believe the new Republican-controlled House is likely to vote to repeal the unpopular national health care law.

They’re less confident that taxes and government spending will go down with the GOP in charge of the House.

50% view the Pledge as a campaign gimmick rather than a serious policy document.

For most voters, however, the election was a referendum on President Obama’s agenda, and they think he should change course with Republicans now in control of the House.  But most don’t expect him to make that change.
