All we talk about now is Trump or Hillary's approval at @40%.
No one ever talks about the disapproval of congress (@90%).
Maybe we are morons.

Well to be fair, a good percentage of people really are morons. I can't say I entirely disagree with them.
Bachner report that the overwhelming majority of D.C.'s Beltway Insiders think the American public is pitifully uninformed on government policy. 72 percent of those governing officials think the public has little or no knowledge about policies to aid the poor. 71 percent believe that they have little or no knowledge about science and technology.
so why the disconnect, my thoughts is, something or someone came in between our elected officials and us, these are paid lobbyist who are now so brazen they write policy for their own benefit and "our" elected or selected officials rubber stamp it while getting paid but the big pay day is when they finish politicking to become lobbyist themselves

Looking at the large swath of people who support Trump? Despite everything about him?
I'd have to agree with them, the proof is in the pudding and baby we're swimming in it
You could say the same about Hillary despite all we know about her. But for a lot of people ... those are the only real options. I don't like Trump at all, but I hate Hillary more.

Sadly I agree with them...we have a two party system that people blindly follow and question nothing...sounds about right
So the prevailing opinion so far is the "The masses are asses."a quote supposedly made by Alexander Hamilton , if so what to do about fixing it, we had social studies in High School and lessons in democracy by having a voting student body for class president, so when did most ppl stop caring and do mostly complaining.

Maybe because it's really hard to go hunting, camping, fishing, biking, etc., when the so-called sound environmental policy has shut down the business that was your livelihood?
No money = no leisure in the great outdoors even if it is saved.
