Americans' evaluation of the job Congress is doing is the worst Gallup has ever measured, with 13% approving, tying the all-time low measured in December 2010.

Maybe i might be jumping kinda far here but, is it crazy to think that Americans soon could very possibly start showing there anger not through stats but by standing on the White House lawn? Or are most of us still chowing down on our Burger King..edit on 17-8-2011 by SevenOhhTwo because: grammar mistake

Rasmussen’s Political Class
Posted in liberty, politics by dingodonkey on December 28, 2009
Rasmussen has defined a really fantastic concept for its poll interpretations: the Political Class. The very name evokes images of power elites and pundits, fervently applauding their own efforts while peppering their language with meaningless phrases like “the American people” and “Main Street” (vs. “Wall Street”). Oh, you didn’t get all that from it? Well, I did… Maybe I’m too bitter. Anyway, the Political Class is that small group of elites and its ardent supporters, the ones who try to brand themselves as populists but are in fact concerned primarily with the goodness of their own power and authority.
Rasmussen defines the category based on a three-question poll:
1. Generally speaking, when it comes to important national issues, whose judgment do you trust more – the American people or America’s political leaders?
2. Some people believe that the federal government has become a special interest group that looks out primarily for its own interests. Has the federal government become a special interest group?
3. Do government and big business often work together in ways that hurt consumers and investors?
The idea is that each one has three acceptable answers (the populist answer, the elitist answer, and “I don’t know”), and your category is assigned based on your responses..... dingodonkey.wordpress.com...
