A significant chunk of Louisiana Republicans evidently believe that President Barack Obama is to blame for the poor response to the hurricane that ravaged their state more than three years before he took office.
29% of Louisiana Republicans said Obama, who was still a freshman U.S. Senator when the storm battered the Gulf Coast in 2005, was more responsible. Nearly half of Louisiana Republicans — 44 percent — said they aren’t sure who to blame. Only 28% said they think former President George W. Bush, who was in office at the time, was more responsible for the poor federal response.
An informed populace is the GOP’s worst nightmare. Studies show over and over that the more education a person has, the more likely that person is to be a Democrat. And the more religious a person is, the more likely that person is to be a Republican.
