Oklahomans Sour on U.S. Economy

You'd think a booming oil market would improve the economic outlook of Sooner state voters.

You'd be wrong.

The new Sooner Poll, reported in today's Tulsa World, found a mere 4 percent of Oklahomans who said the economy was improving. The vast majority, more than 80 percent, said the economy is getting worse. The poll included 750 likely voters in Oklahoma.

Given this enormous gap, even Oklahoma voters may be having second thoughts about the economic policies of John McCain. As the Democrats have noted, McCain's economic policies closely resemble those of George W. Bush.

Given the current situation, voters ought be steering clear of another four years of Bush-O-Nomics.
