There’s only one thing voters hate worse than Democrats:
That is, of course, Republicans. The latest NY Times/CBS News poll found that, while while voters rate the performance of Democrats negatively, they view Republicans as even worse with 63 percent disapproving of Democrats and 73 percent disapproving of Republicans. Still, the prevailing “they all suck” attitude is not good news for the Democrats as they have the most seats up for re-election and over 63% of the voters are pretty much determined to vote for “the other guy.”
I would propose instead that we begin a national campaign to elect “None of the Above” as a write-in candidate. I don’t expect it to change much but it would force a lot of run-off elections and would send a real message to Washington that we are sick of the nonsense, that we are “as mad as Hell – and we’re not going to take it anymore.” If you watch this video clip from 1976 (click picture) you’re realize how little progress we’ve made in 35 years of American politics. If only we’d taken Howard Beale’s Oscar-winning advice at the time and gotten off our sofas and actually said: “I’m a human being, *********! My life has value!” – maybe we could have done something about the Corporate Kleptocracy this nation has morphed into. Now, instead, we are once again asked to flip the switch for Republicans or Democrats and, if the candidates weren’t labeled, it would be very hard to tell most of them apart.
In many election cycles, voters readily acknowledge that they are dissatisfied with government or Congress in general, but they tend to have a stronger connection toward their own representative. That is not the case this year, with 55 percent of voters saying it is time for new leadership and only 34 percent saying their lawmaker deserves re-election. It is a historic high for a question asked in each midterm election year since 1990. Of course, the MSM plays a huge roll in this as 8 out of 10 Americans rate “the economy” negatively but, when asked about their own family’s financial situation, 6 of 10 say it is the same or improving. So 40% of the people feel their own situation is negative but 80% think it’s negative for everyone else. Gee, I wonder where they get that impression?
Voters do not perceive Republicans as having better ideas and disagree with them on the biggest economic issue of the campaign —…
