Wow, this is terrible. Via The Hill:
More than seven in 10 U.S. voters, 71 percent, are dissatisfied with the way things are going in the country, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Monday.
A plurality of Americans, 41 percent, reported being “very dissatisfied” for the survey, while 30 percent were “somewhat dissatisfied,” 26 percent “somewhat satisfied” and 2 percent “very satisfied.”
And there’s more:
The poll found little enthusiasm for Congress, with a majority of voters saying they did not approve of the way Republicans and Democrats are handling their jobs, 81 percent and 66 percent, respectively.
People often ask me what I think most voters are looking for in a presidential candidate. Leadership, efficiency, and authenticity come to mind pretty quickly. Most voters are disheartened with politicians, political parties, and everything that reeks of the same old business-as-usual nonsense that never fixes anything.
But I’m interested in what you have to say…
Are you surprised by the findings above? Do you agree with them?
Are any of the GOP presidential candidates addressing your concerns in a way that inspires confidence?
What’s your advice to GOP candidates in terms of delivery and policy as they relate to the dissatisfaction so many voters feel?
