National Poll October 19, 2006

Posted by Kilgore Trout in Uncategorized.

I think its safe to say that people are pissed off at our government, and particularly the Republicans. Check out this article from the Wall Street Journal.

Wall Street Journal – Poll Signals More Republican Woes

Voters’ approval of Congress has fallen to 16% from 20% since early September, while their disapproval has risen to 75% from 65%. …

That 16% rating statistically matches Congress’s lowest point in the 17 years the Journal and NBC have polled …

By 52% to 37%, voters say they want Democrats rather than Republicans to control Congress. That 15-point advantage is the widest ever registered by either party in the Journal/NBC surveys. Also, the result marks the first time voter preference for one party has exceeded 50%.

75% of the country disapproves of our congress. That’s incredible. I mean its terrible that a representative democracy can fall to the point where 3/4 of the people disagree with those elected but hey at least people are finally paying attention, if only they had done the same 2 years ago…
