The Polls Tell the Story

I am not big on poles. Usually they are within a few points and don't mean anything. Often the questions are so convoluted or biased they make their own conclusion without the input of those being poled. I will take this moment to look at a poll simply because the separation between the two sides are so extreme.

The Wall Street Journal and NBC News did a poll and had some dramatic results.

If we in America get it how come those in DC don't? We need to keep the pressure up long enough for their heads to pop out of their rectums so they can clearly see. Any politician's biggest fear is loss of power. Remind them clearly that their career is on the line.
