How to Win the Argument — Thatcher Sytle
We know we’re not happy with our current government. A Rasmussen poll released last week noted that 40 percent of voters are very angry, and 25 percent are somewhat angry “at the current policies of the federal government.” Combined, this means two out of every three likely voters are not happy with their government.
So the people who are likely to vote for the politicians, and who pay the politicians, are angry. The result: This fall, politicians will be falling fast.
If it were possible to short elected officials, now would be the time.
We know that we don’t like what President Barack Obama is doing to our country. And yes, I meant doing TO our country, not doing FOR our country. This dislike registers as disapproval. His disapproval rating (54 percent) is currently higher than his approval rating (45 percent).
