65% of Voters Are Angry At Federal Government’s Policies

anger-mEditor’s Note – Of all the data included in this story, perhaps the most alarming is this;

‘Yet while 83% of Mainstream voters are angry at the government’s policies, 92% of those in the Political Class are not.’

Is there any better sign of the disconnect between Washington, D. C. and the American people?  It’s astonishing that there can be such a wide disparity of opinion. 

Not a good sign for the people of this country, who ultimately pay the price for all the decision making coming from government.

 

65% of Voters Are Angry At Federal Government’s Policies

Rasmussen Reports

With midterm elections less than three months away, nearly two-out-of-three U.S. voters (65%) remain at least somewhat angry at the current policies of the federal government, including 40% who are Very Angry.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters nationwide finds that just 30% are not angry at the government, with 13% who are Not At All Angry.

In surveys since last September, those angry at the government have ranged from 66% to 75%. Those who are Very Angry have run from 33% to 46%.

Yet while 83% of Mainstream voters are angry at the government’s policies, 92% of those in the Political Class are not.

But 59% of all voters also continue to feel that neither Republican nor Democratic political leaders have a good understanding of what is needed today. This finding has not changed in nearly a year.

Eighty-seven percent (87%) of Republicans and 73% of voters not affiliated with either major party are angry at the current policies of the federal government. Fifty-two percent (52%) of Democrats don’t share that anger.
