    And They Wonder Why Voters Are Angry - Scott Rasmussen - Townhall Conservative Columnists - Page 1

    As Mitt Romney assumes the role of presumptive Republican nominee, polls suggest a competitive general election matchup between the former Massachusetts governor and President Obama. Typically, both candidates poll in the mid-40s, while 10 to 12 percent remain uncommitted to either side.

    Among these uncommitted voters, Rasmussen Reports polling shows that just 22 percent approve of the way the president is handling his job. Seventy-two percent (72 percent) disapprove. As for intensity, just 2 percent strongly approve, and 40 percent strongly disapprove.

    At first glance, this seems like good news for Romney. These uncommitted voters will be difficult for the president to win over. But it raises another question: If these uncommitted voters are so unhappy with the president, why aren't they already Romney supporters?

    The data suggest that voters are less than thrilled with the choices they'll have in November. The lack of enthusiasm for Romney among GOP voters has been well documented. Among Democrats, enthusiasm for their candidate is noticeably down, as well. Among young voters, for example, just 20 percent strongly approve of the job the president is doing.

    Most young voters, of course, will still end up voting for the president just as most disgruntled Republicans will end up voting for Romney. But neither candidate connects well with white working-class voters. Romney has struggled to win over these voters in his primary contests, and Obama lost them to Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Democratic primaries. For many, Election 2012 is shaping up to be another choice between the lesser of two evils.

    How many of you are excited for the rash of Horsecrap that will now hit the airwaves ?

    Voters are angry because Republicans have put making Obama a one term President their number one priority. NOT the American people that they took an oath to serve.

    Any politician working to help make Barry a one term president is serving me just fine, thank you. It's the president's political ideology, agenda, etc. that I'm against, not him personally.

    And, of course, this sort of thing has NEVER happened before. The Democrats would NEVER make defeating a Republican President their "number one priority". The Democrats would NEVER put politics ahead of "serving the people". :badgrin::eusa_boohoo::lol:

    Hypocrite. Liar. Ignoramus.

    First, most Republicans havent taken any oaths.

    Second, making Obama a one term president is a service to the American people.

    I'm angry because we are no better off than we were 5 Trillion dollars ago and the 5 Trillion has been pissed away on pay offs, pay backs and bribes.

    If this doesn't leave you angry also, you don't have the sense to be angry when you're getting raped.
