A Washington Post survey last month found that 50 percent of those questioned said Bush is more to blame than Obama for the state of today's economy, and 38 percent said Obama is more to blame. (Seven percent blamed both equally.) The figures are pretty much the same as they were two years ago.
Not so fast, York writes. A Republican pollster, David Winston, removed the polarizing names "Bush" and "Obama" from the polling and found:
When Winston asked the question in November 2012, 53 percent of those surveyed said the policies of the past were causing more problems, and 44 percent said the policies of the present.
When Winston asked the same question not too long ago, in November 2013, 41 percent said the policies of the past, and 49 percent said the policies of the present.
