Rasmussen Reports says 75% Are Angry At Governmentâ€™s Current Policies:
Voters are madder than ever at the current policies of the federal government.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 75% of likely voters now say they are at least somewhat angry at the governmentâ€™s current policies, up four points from late November and up nine points since September.
Eighty-nine percent (89%) of Republicans are angry with the governmentâ€™s current policies, which is perhaps not surprising with the White House and Congress both in Democratic hands. But 78% of voters not affiliated with either major party agree.
Sixty-one percent (61%) of Democrats share that anger, but Republicans are three times as likely as Democrats to be Very Angry.
While much of the attention lately has been focused on tea party goers as being the most upset, this latest poll suggests that the issues Americans have with government transcend party lines.
Republicans may feel confident going into the 2010 mid-term elections, but as we’ve mentioned before, they’ll only have a year or so to make serious changes, otherwise they face an ousting in the 2012 elections.
The American public seems to be waking up to the idea that both parties are equally responsible for where we are today, and hopefully we’ll take action en masse in the coming years to stop the culture of corruption, deceit, and self centeredness that has permeated Washington DC for the last century.
