Throw the Bums
There's more bad news for the Party of Foodstamps, as a new ABC/Yahoo poll is released that shows how Americans are really feeling - pissed off!
Twenty-five percent of people surveyed – including 12 percent of Democrats and 30 percent of independents – described themselves as “angry” over the state of the economy. And although 54 percent blame both parties, “35 percent say they're angrier with the Democrats – more than triple the number, 10 percent, who aim their ire at the Republicans.” Langer also noted that “fewer than 34 percent” said they felt the economy was beginning to recover – down from 45 percent last February.
In other words, everyone is mad at the socialists.
But a mere 1 percent of Americans say they're "more than satisfied" with the current economy, and just 14 percent are satisfied with it -- among registered voters, 17 percent of Democrats, 10 percent of Republicans and 8 percent of independents. Satisfaction's not only less prevalent than anger, it's also a less-intense sentiment -- and thus no match as a political force -- with the election just three weeks away.
