Surprise, surprise surprise. 

According to Rasmussen Reports, 71% of Americans are angry at the Federal Government.  Of those 71%, 46% are Very Angry.  Count me in that group.

The number of Americans angry is up 5 points from September.  More telling is the fact that the Very Angry group has grown by 10% in the same amount of time. 

The anger is rising, and it isn't just on the right.

Here's the big question, though - will the most tone-deaf administration in our country's short history pay attention to what the polls are telling them?

My guess?  A big, fat, expensive NO.

This part of the article is particularly telling:

The latest numbers show that only nine percent (9%) of voters trust the judgment of America’s political leaders more than the judgment of the American people. Seventy-four percent (74%) place more trust in the wisdom of the crowd.

Seventy-one percent (71%) believe the federal government has become a special interest group that looks out primarily for its own interests. Sixty-eight percent (68%) believe that government and big business work together in ways that hurt consumers and investors.
Interesting, considering those in the government are always blaming special interests and big business for all of our troubles. 

Who would have thought I would ever agree so whole-heartedly with this administration on something? 

Oh, and apparently being a memeber of Congress is the least-respected job one can hold right now - an honor previously held by those evil CEO's.

Oh, the irony.
