While everyone is reciting the latest Senate races and the latest Congressional House races, the one over-arcing theme that seems to be ignored or forgotten is Congressional Support from Americans. The voters.
I know, its a poll. But, its something to work with. Congress’s approval rating (latest according to Real Clear Politics) is at 18%. 18%. Let that sink in for a second. Even in a college class with a curve, 18% is failing. Terribly.
Its been abysmal for years. So, what can be done to correct this? Can it be corrected?
I say nope, that partisan bickering is going to continue for quite a long time. And Americans (in general), even though they pull the “D” or “R” lever to make themselves feel better for the party they support as a whole, just keep bringing in the same crap, over and over again.
