According to a Rasmussen poll, the level of political anger in America compared to when President Bush was President is:
- Higher – 59%’
- Lower – 22%
- Same – 16%
Considering that another Obama campaign promise just bit the dust, I’m not surprised. I am, of course, referring to the Democrats rejecting the Republican proposal to post the text of the “new” healthcare bill 72 hours before voting on it. This transparency was a campaign promise made by then candidate Obama and echoed by many of the Democratic candidates. So the next poll question results make a little more sense:
Neither Democrat nor Republican leaders understand what is needed today.
- Agree with statement – 60%
- Disagree with statement – 30%
- No opinion – 10%
Both of these polls are non-partisan.
Then here’s today’s Presidential approval index graphic:
The politicians on both sides of the aisle had better be very worried – there are a lot of angry people out there just waiting for their chance to make sure there is real change in government
