Obama Approval Rating


While the Dems still hold a slight advantage and in some cases no advantage to there Republican counterparts it is clear that the tide is beginning to turn against both major political parties.

Do you think we will see a rise of Independents in future elections? Are Americans starting to see through the 2 party system? Will they start voting based on ideals instead of what the letter is behind the name?

These are encouraging numbers and will hopefully lead to a cleaning out of both Rep's and Dem's alike.

What's your take on this?
