Bloomberg Poll: 72% of Americans Say America Has Lost Its Greatness



According to a recent Bloomberg poll, 72% of Americans believe that the United States of America has lost its greatness. This is the theme of GOP presidential candidate front-runner like Donald Trump and other political outsiders like Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina. Americans are fed up with the direction that the leadership of both parties. But as the Bloomberg article is written, the reason “We the People” are fed up with politics, suspect the wealthy are getting an unfair edge, and think the country is going in the wrong direction. Sorry, that is only part of it. For if that were true, why would Americans be trowing their support behind business men and women like Trump and Fiorina who would fall into that class of privileged people? However, it is the three outside the Beltway, non-political candidates that are leading the pack of GOP presidential candidates in most all polls. People want change and they are fed up; however, note to Americans, you cannot just bitch and moan, you must actively do something about it.

Network: I’m mad as Hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!!!

Americans are “fed up” with politics, suspect the wealthy are getting an unfair edge, and think the country is going in the wrong direction, according to a new Bloomberg Politics poll that lays bare the depth and breadth of the discontents propelling outsider candidates in the Republican presidential field.

The survey shows that 72 percent of Americans think their country isn’t as great as it once was—a central theme of front-runner Donald Trump’s campaign. More than a third prefer a presidential candidate without experience in public office.

Three of the four candidates leading the Republican field fit that description: Trump, the first choice of 21 percent of registered Republicans and voters who say they lean that way, followed by neurosurgeon Ben Carson with 16 percent, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush with 13 percent, and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina with 11 percent.

EXIT QUESTION: We the People, its up to you whether you want America’s greatness back. No one is going to give it to you, it has to be taken. You do so by voting in the correct people into office and throwing out ones that have no business being there. Especially, the establishment candidates of both parties who are just there to go along to get along. This is supposed to be a government of, by and for the People. It was We the People who elected Barack Obama, not once but twice, and it was We the People who voted in establishment GOP candidates when you had the opportunity to send a message. Yes, I am calling you out Tennessee. Thank you so much for gibe us the likes of Corker and Alexander. How the hell a blood red Republican state could send two mushy middle, RINO’s to the US Senate is beyond me. And that hold true for the rest of the states where you had the opportunity to elect a candidate that would be different and actually uphold Republican ideals, principles and the platform. Not just get elected to stay in power.

      This is an important issue and as usual SM has put their finger on the problem.

      The real problem is that the federalism we see today began immediately following the Civil War when the federal government sent an army of occupation to the states who joined the Confederacy and followed that with a bunch of “Carpet Baggers” chosen not by the people, but by the cabal in Washington D.C.made up of special interest groups who bought and paid for the government they wanted.

      This problem has resulted in the mess created by representatives who no longer do the will of the people, but make unconstitutional laws to give themselves power, money and control. Every branch of the federal government has been compromised.

      The people must do a better job of finding individuals who truly desire to represent the people and have enough self-will to stand firm for the people when they are faced with big money to sway their votes when elected.

      Unfortunately, the lawyer class is the largest class of people occupying our federal agencies and they are the least likely to vote against cleaning up the mess they created. This IMO is the prime reason for the leading candidates in the polls for the GOP to be business people and not “old line” politicians.

      So 28% think we’re O.K. Oh, those are the looney tunes.

      I think Donald Trump truly and sincerely cares about our country and will do his damnedest to clean up the mess and put us where we need to be. I think he has the fortitude, the strength, the wisdom, the energy, the willingness, the courage and the mind of a man that knows what success means and how to get there.

      So let’s go trumping, blow your horns, stomp the ground and let’s stabilize ourselves and take our country back, it belongs to us “We The People”.
