Angry? It’s Called Buyer’s Remorse

April 19, 2010

Voters were sold a bad bill of goods in 2008 and they are not going to forget.

from Atlantic:

Pew has a new poll out suggesting that “[b]y almost every conceivable measure Americans are less positive and more critical of government these days,” and that, while people have been frustrated with the government for some time (the mid-50% range has been common since 1997), people are now more angry: 21% now say they are “angry” when describing their feeling toward the federal government–up 5% from last year, and the only time Pew’s anger numbers have cracked 20% in the last 13 years, except 2006.

30% now say the government is a “major threat” to them. (43% of those who say so are Republicans; 18%, Democrats; 33%, independents.)
