Beware Incumbents in Power: 75% of Americans Angry With Current Government Policies

Just when Democrat incumbents thought things had died down as the Obamacare debate had been shelved for the time being, along comes the following Rasmussen poll that should scare the daylights out of them. 75% of Americans are angry with current government policies.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 75% of likely voters now say they are at least somewhat angry at the government’s current policies, up four points from late November and up nine points since September. The overall figures include 45% who are Very Angry, also a nine-point increase since September.

63% of Americans think that America would be better off if most Congressman were not reelected to office. Something that I cannot disagree with; however, that does not mean throw all the bums out. There are some politicians that are actually doing a good job. It is the voters job to determine which ones.  Although Americans blame both parties for being out of touch with America one has to remember two key points when it comes to the overall mood and possible voting tendencies come the midterm elections in November.

One, Democrats control the White House, Senate and House of Representatives. Their overwhelming majorities in the House and Senate make it possible for them to pass legislation that WE THE PEOPLE are upset about without Republican support.

Two, the Generic Congressional Ballot has Republicans ahead of  Democrats 44% to 36%.

Poll after poll, whether they be US Senate, US House or Governors races, Republicans have leads across the board mainly because the Independents have shifted to them and far away from Democrats. Barack Obama and the Donkey party appears to be in for a long midterm election night as WE THE PEOPLE are about to remind all politicians who works for who.

To piggyback on the 75% of Americans angry at the current government policies comes the WAPO/ABC poll where  2/3′s of Americans are “dissatisfied” or downright “angry” about the way the federal government is working.

The opening is clear: Public dissatisfaction with how Washington operates is at its highest level in Post-ABC polling in more than a decade — since the months after the Republican-led government shutdown in 1996 — and negative ratings of the two major parties hover near record highs.

But nearly two-thirds of those polled say they know just some, very little or nothing about what the tea party movement stands for. About one in eight says they know “a great deal” about the positions of tea party groups, but the lack of information does not erase the appeal: About 45 percent of all Americans say they agree at least somewhat with tea partiers on issues, including majorities of Republicans and independents.

It should be no shock that Americans are angry, pissed off even and they are about to take their wrath out on the party in power in 2010. Democrats, you can run, you can hide and you can deny … however, the midterm elections will occur and you will lose.
