Satisfaction With U.S. Historically Low for Midterm Year


Satisfaction with the way things are going is a key indicator to watch leading up to Election Day in November. Low satisfaction ratings have typically been associated with greater net seat change between parties in Congress in midterm election years, as was the case for the 1982, 1994, and 2006 elections. In each of those years, the average satisfaction rating was no higher than 33%. In 1994 and 2006, as is the case this year, the same party controlled the presidency and Congress heading into the elections, and party control of Congress changed hands after Election Day.

In years with higher satisfaction ratings, such as 1986 and 1998, the number of congressional seats changing parties was low.
Democrats are clearly vulnerable to losing their majority this year -- Gallup's generic ballot tracking shows that registered voters are divided in their current vote preferences for Congress, but given the usual Republican turnout advantage, the Republicans appear to hold the upper hand at this point.

They tell us anger about the healthcare bill forced down our throats has cooled and that means we won't throw the bums out this November.

LET'S PROVE THEM WRONG, ONCE AGAIN. Throw the bums out!

Vote conservative only!

I really don't think you need to remind the voters of anything this November.

You're right, but I wouldn't be one bit surprised to see the current crop of inept and incompetent republicans fuck up a sure thing.
Let's hope so.

They certainly fucked up the 8 years they were in the White House.

Two useless wars, the complete destruction of the American economy, etc....

Popularity for government was higher then in this era of ineptitude you speak of, than since 2006 to present. But that's just the racist minority of tea partiers... isn't it?

If I had my druthers, nobody in congress more than 12 years at any one position or 30 years in any level of public office would be gone. 9 out of 10 times, they're way too corrupt.

How about getting some more recent talking points from your handler dumb ass. Those 2 you mention are being embraced and enhanced by your Lord and Master Obama.

I don't see how any cons can sit there and point fingers after what Bush did... you people are ridiculous. Get a fucking life. "Embrached and enhanced by our lord Obama." How about the fact that these two events just happened within recent history and were the most unamerican events ever, yet for some reason are tolerated as being okay. Yet, the mere existence of Obama trying to clean up the mess that Bush created incites such hateful and problably racist remarks. The hypocrisy of the conservative party is staggering. I am convinced you are the problem with this country. You are all insane, deluded, and unintelligent. Go back and the till the fields and stay out of the business of a country trying to stay alive after eight years of rape.

LOL, the problem is that both parties have stooges like yourself that blame the other and refuse to look inward.

More silly partisan quakery.

Your Republican Party won't save you.

Neither will your Democratic Party.

Each takes us from pillory to post, and still some of you believe in them.

I just don't get it.

How on earth can anyone miss something so obvious as this?

:lol: This statement has endeared you to the kook leftwing loons...congratulations....you are part of the largest failure in U.S. history to date. Obama had a real chance to make a difference and all he's done is keep the status quo with a Eurotrash socialist twist. Too bad you and those who ascribe to your thought train are too fucking stupid to see it.

and how about learning how to spell "problably".....pinhead...I think that was 2nd grade english...or did you quit school.

This statement has "endeared" me? Do you mean, "prompted" me? Learn to speak english before you comment on a typo. Stop saying "socialist." You're just buying what they are selling you, and it is sad. Who subscribes to my thought? I don't consider myself a liberal or any label. I just know that conservatives these days are all full of shit, and I'm just glad you're not in power anymore, and you don't deserve to be. You are selfish people who only care about yourselves and nothing about anyone else. You care about America insofar as it benefits you. You care about no one else. It's pathetic, self-righteous, and selfish. I know understand why people kill over beliefs. Conservatives are so infuriating. I just wish I could beat the crap out of you all. You think you are so tough. Just shut the fuck up and let the adults run the country.
