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.Interesting, considering those in the government are always blaming special interests and big business for all of our troubles.
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.
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.
