New Poll Says 2 Out of Three People Are Angry At Government Policies

by Ben Hoffman

Sixty-six percent (66%) of voters nationwide say they’re at least somewhat angry about the current policies of the federal government. That figure includes 36% who are Very Angry.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 30% are not angry about the government’s policies, including 10% who are Not at All Angry.

While Rasmussen has a strong conservative bias in their polls, this one may be right on. I mean, why shouldn’t people be angry? Our tax dollars have been used to bail out the financial industry that was responsible for destroying our economy. Industries that were deemed “too big to fail” have gotten even bigger. There has yet to be any new regulation to prevent another major failure. The rich have gotten richer and the rest of us are losing ground. Unemployment is high. The deficit is unfathomable. Health insurance costs have skyrocketed. And all that seems to come out of Washington is petty bickering.

  1. One small correction: Tax dollars were not used to bail out the financial industry. The federal government borrowed the money.

  2. And your blog with it’s pictures of Klan members and blame for Bush every other breath rises above it all? And your blame of Bush for TARP is classic. All of your liberal heros voted for it. The house and senate were democrat controlled…yet that is all on Bush. When are any of you going to realize that neither side works for us?

    • Sorry, I don’t see politicians as heros like right-wingers do. We elect them to work for us — not to lead us.

      • Yet you give Obama a pass on everything he does while blaming Bush for everything bad. Do some research and you will find liberal paws all over everything bad that’s happening to this economy. And their solution…spend more…brilliant!!

      • Nope, that’s a typical right-wing debate strategy. If someone says something critical of Republicans, that person automatically must support EVERYTHING Obama does. The reason is, right-wingers support EVERYTHING Republicans do, even if the policies are bad for them. That’s pretty much the definition of a sheep.
