People are sick and tired of the political establishment being used to benefit the wealthy and well-connected.
A new poll carried out by extremely leftist NBC and the Wall Street Journal show that democrats, as well as republicans,
are disgusted and “angry” at career politicians who work for themselves.
The Hill reported:
The majority of Americans said they are angry at the political establishment, which they say benefits the
well-connected class, according to a new poll.
Seventy percent of Americans said they feel angry because the political system seems
to only be working for insiders with money and power, according to an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday.
The poll found 43 percent of Americans said the statement described them “very well” and 27 percent said it
described them “somewhat.”
It is statistically equivalent to the number of Americans who felt the same way four years ago, ahead of President
Trump’s 2016 election, based on the poll.
However, the feeling shifted from Republicans to Democrats.
Twenty-nine percent of Republicans said feeling anger at the political establishment described
them “very well,” which is a ten point decrease from 2015, based on the poll.
But, 54 percent of Democrats now resonate “very well” with the sentiment, which is a ten point uptick from 2015.
The most significant increases were also seen among women under 50, up 10 points to 48 percent,
African Americans, up five points to 46 percent, and Hispanics, up 11 points to 49 percent.
Despite saying they’re angry at the political establishment, 69 percent of Americans said they
are satisfied with their overall financial situation today, according to the poll.
But 56 percent also said they feel “anxious and uncertain” over the economy.
The poll surveyed 1,000 adults between Aug. 10 and 14, with more than half reached by cell phone.
There is a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points.
So… people are happy with President Trump’s economy, but disgusted by career politicians who protect high-ranking
politicians, and generally carry out actions that hinder the president?
Sounds about right.
