Well well well. Looks who is stinking up the polls. The dems (and the repubs). And for good reason. 37% of Americans have a favorable view of the dems. WOW


Favorable views of the Democratic Party have dropped to their lowest mark in more than a quarter century of polling, according to new numbers from a CNN poll conducted by SSRS.
Only 37% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Democrats, down from 44% in March of this year. A majority, 54%, have an unfavorable view, matching their highest mark in polls from CNN and SSRS, CNN/ORC and CNN/USA Today/Gallup stretching back to 1992.
www.cnn.com...

But 30% of Americans hold a favorable view of the repubs, 61% have an unfavorable view. For good reason (healthcare).


But the Republican Party isn't doing any better, with just 30% of Americans holding a favorable view. That's essentially the same as September, when the rating hit its lowest point in polling back to 1992, but down from 42% in March. A broad 6 in 10, 61%, have an unfavorable opinion.


The system is infiltrated with lobby money and the obviousness of the most politicians on both sides being owned is disgusting.

Sounds about right! How any sane American can view what either party is doing favorably is beyond me.

I recall the repubs bitching and crying about the ACA and then when it they get a chance to hit it out of the park they drop the ball---hard.

They both suck, and there is room for a third party, but voting does very very very little.

Oh they get it, but there are orders and goals that must be implemented.


Hillary Clinton took an enema on the whole Dem party to bone sanders out of the run in 2016. And still we will have dems with dem stars in their eyes blindly supporting the jackassery of "their" party or better said, club.

And yes the repubs can't find their ass even if their was a bell firmly mounted to it. Their "club's" idiocy is only matched by their devotion to a worn out system that is corporate controlled.

Seriously? Most of the people here don't get it.

True.

Objectively speaking, both parties are NOT for the American citizen. They do things that are not in favor of the individual and enrich the corporations. We are indeed heading for a bad bad time.

I think it is generally quite hard to be viewed favourably by the population when your platform adopts the position that the majority population are evil and responsible for all the ills in the world.

It'll be interesting to see what happens in the congressional election next year.

Are you referring to the D's or R's?

Or both?

about time people are waking up the truth that neither party works for the people.

you have to be blissfully ignant to be proud of the DNC or the GOP.

now if they would only take the big step and joing forces to demand

1. lobbying reform
2. term limits in congress.
3. real transparency
4. close revolving doors between private and public sector

Personally I believe we need to clean house. Remove ALL career politicians. Implement term limits, and get some fresh minds/ideas in congress.

It's time to get rid of these worthless fools, and get some younger people in there with fresh ideas.. but that won't happen because then the government would lose control.. It always has been, and will always be about control.

It wouldn't matter if they had a 1% rating for both parties, they would still rig elections, and get their way.. Voting doesn't matter, because if it mattered, we wouldn't be in this mess to begin with.

All hail corruption, for its the only way of life in this f#'d up world we live in.

Pick your poison.

Democrats view whites as evil, Republicans view the poor as beneath contempt.

Neither are particularly good crowd pleasers.

Both sides suck.

Until you introduce term limits, both sides will continue to suck.

Go back (if you dare) and look at the threads during the campaign as the futile R v D debates raged. And not just the past election. The previous ones as well. There were many of us that begged people to turn away from both parties and support 3rd parties. The loudest voices started the hackneyed 'wasted vote' argument. The majority just refuse to get it. We're being had. We've been 'being had' for decades --- it is intentionally designed to work that way. It's the only way They can retain control. The ONLY way we break out of this is to abandon BOTH parties suddenly and en masse. Or we can all just keep bending over and lying to ourselves that THIS time, THIS person is going to change things.

Of course. And if you'll drop your knickers tonight we can look at engagement rings next week.

I'm with you brother. I made a couple of threads against the left/right paradigm. They received practically no recognition, and I got about the same responses you described.

People are sheep man, even people on ATS. I've seen a pretty large influx of sheep here lately. I don't blame them though, It's easy to fall back into the illusion if you slip a bit.

It's fine if they don't get it. Makes for better entertainment.

What is important is that it's happening and the roots of corruption are exposed. Whether or not anything will be done about it remains to be seen.

Term limits will only change the R and D stratagy.

The real way to cut the balls off the hydra is to greatly reduce the power of the citizen corporation (lobby).
