Ys, I know it’s silly to discuss nonsensical voters for two reasons. 1: They don’t go looking for information which might shake their worldview; 2: it’s like yelling at customers and expecting them to still like you.
Nonetheless, yet another poll has found that voters hate the Congress and the actions of the incumbents.
This is becoming a tiring and repetitious claim.
The nonsensical part is that these respondents pretend that it’s that important to them, yet I would bet that NONE of them will vote against their incumbent based on this topic. If they did Congress would take the polls seriously. The second-most important issue in the country? Right. Well, if only 3% of 80M voters support the Congress OR the Pres on this issue, and if it’s second only to Iraq ( a lie to begin with because their pocketbook is more important to them than is Iraq), then I’ll expect, what, LESS THAN 2.4M votes TOTAL to be cast FOR ANY incumbent next Fall, right? 3% of 80M voters is 2.4M. If it’s the MOST important issue, then only 3% of voters would vote for ANY incumbent. As it is second-most, then the total will be less than 2.4M.
Yet since we KNOW that the Congress will be returned on the order of 97%, these respondents all are lying. The reps know that – and so they know it is safe to ignore the voters – that’s us.
Think about it.
75% of Americans are against Affirmative Action – yet year after year representatives and Senators are returned to Congress who vote for it.
73% of Americans are against same-sex marriage – yet year after year congressmen are returned to office having supported same-sex marriage in order to get elected.
80%+ Americans are against late-term abortion.. yet they return these same Congressmen to office….
The voter thinks he or she can take a position one way in a poll, vote a different way, yet their stated wishes will be honored rather than the way they vote.
Thank unionized teachers.
