    Default Pew: Anti-Incumbent Mood

    Quote:
    America’s current anti-incumbent mood rivals levels in 1994 and 2006, the previous two wave election years in which the majority party was swept out of power, according to the latest Pew Research Center survey out today on the midterm election climate.

    **** the Republicans. I never vote for anyone that wants us out of a job and out of our union. If they win, pack your bags for India...that's where you'll find all our jobs.

    Congress always has piss poor over all approval, but people still like their congress person. They just hate yours.

    Exactly. That's why this "Vote out the incumbents" BS won't happen. Republicans want you to vote out all DEMOCRATIC incumbents but won't vote out their own. I haven't agreed with much that Congress has done in the last 40 years, but that's the fault of the political process. You can place the blame on both parties, not just one.

    Nothing like it will ever happen. No way Democratic voters will vote out their Congressperson, or Republican voter vote out theirs. No matter what people say, they primarily vote for whatever the candidate of "their" party. Unfortunately even if the candidate is a moron. Frankly, that's how we always seem to get politicians who shaft us, we vote for them. Whatever criteria we're using to pick Best & Brightest to represent us is definitely not working out for us. Where's the "Theodore Roosevelt" of today's breed of candidate...of either party? You can blame the Party's themselves, since they basically have to sell a form of "Brand Loyalty", the actual qualifications of the candidate becomes secondary to selling the Product. Just comes down to marketing. That's why I'll only vote for the "party" that has more of a chance of helping my interests (Pro Labor) than not. The Democrats may or may not eventually act in Labor's favor...but the Republicans tell us, straight out, that they are anti-labor, anti-union. At least with the Democrats, there's the CHANCE.

    There needs to be a new breed with some pull....Favoring Wallstreet as the GOP does is like favoring other countries before our own...we, the unions and workers are the true country...we vote for our jobs and that affects our quality of life on local levels...Wallstreet and their brainwashing economic policies are like terrorists of the economic kind destroying the solidarity of the nation by destroying the one thing that held us together as a nation..Everyone for themselves is anarchy.
    It has resulted in nothing but lack of solidarity and the undoing of a major bond which held us together.
