The latest Washington Post-ABC News poll shows that 58% have “none or just some” faith in President Obama to make good decisions. Not surprisingly, 68% lack faith in the Democrats and 72% lack faith in the Republicans. I would conclude from this poll that America has lost faith in elected officials on the whole. This does not bode well for incumbents in November….eventhough, normally incumbents, more frequently than not, win re-election easily.
Messages are being sent to all politicians. Americans are sick of the bickering and, what is perceived as, a lack of action on critical issues. It is going to be very interesting this fall. The Senate races in California, Florida, and Nevada are too close to call now. And, the governor’s race in California is very tight! Will the frustration evident in polls translate to the ballot box? If it does, incumbents are in for a rude awakening! For me, it is time for politicians to remember who they represent! I hope the turnover is large!
