This is from the most recent Rasmussen poll.
Another Bush/Clinton race. Wouldn’t that be great?
Given that Washington appears to be utterly dysfunctional (this is good and bad) it’s not surprising that “government” polls as America’s biggest problem.
An interesting poll from The Washington Post. Generally the American public appears to be unsatisfied with everything but is also unlikely to change direction in any substantive way. They don’t like the president. They don’t like Congress. They think the economy stinks. They feel that Washington is out of touch. Pretty standard fare. That a majority of Americans consider the Obama presidency to be a failure is interesting however and may have important political implications in the years ahead.
A defining moment.
Colorado is a political bellwether. It is an interesting mix of rural and city, hippie and frontierspeople, gun nuts and gun control laws, new west and old west. It is perhaps the purplist of purple states. And right now Rand Paul is not quite crushing Hillary Clinton, but soundly ahead of her in this very important electoral state.
Have we reached a place where the average American has had enough of government expanding into their lives in the name of fighting terrorism? 2 recent polls indicate that this might be the case. They were both taken after the Boston bombings.
34% of the American people are right.
