Troublesome statistics, for sure. And, what drives those numbers? Why would people in the U.S. actually feel so badly about our conservative/republican speaker anyway? Was it something he said? Was it because he's against anything and everything Obama says and wants to do? Yeah...probably.
And, so, who presents that to our populace and to those that would actually agree to participate in a poll like this that would then be presented to Americans...and especially we blogsters?
I think we all know how these poll numbers come about. If the mainstream press continuously presents negatives about Boehner and the republicans over and over and over and over again...who doesn't know that those that actually hear those presentations start believing that Boehner and the republicans are all against anything and everything "good" for America. It's good strategy and with the support of the mainstream media, that strategy eventually wins out. It's how it works. It's something republicans and conservatives are struggling to fight against and are mostly losing the battles in that regard.
Carter, you and I know the real deal, of course. We're pragmatic and realists. But, that's not what the majority of our citizens are, as it seems. They are led to believe that we're only going to survive in our country if we follow the progressive way. And, it's going to be tough to change that with most of the press supporting that ideology.
I'm bummed, but am still adamant about my own beliefs. Wish I knew what "we" could do to change what's happening in our country. But, alas, I don't.
