According to a new set of numbers you arenâ€™t happy with how things are being done in Washington, DC. But while Washington should be worried about this, analysts arenâ€™t sure youâ€™re going to do anything about it.
The New NBC poll says President Obama's approval rating is at a new low at 40%. Sixty percent of you donâ€™t like the way the economy is and 70% think the country is headed in the wrong direction. KTRH political analyst Chris Begala says it's all about your bottom line.
â€œPeople arenâ€™t as well off as they were nine years ago. Thereâ€™s no doubt about that,â€ Begala said. â€œThere are a lot of people out of work. Itâ€™s more expensive to live and people are feeling the pinch.â€
But even though you have a chance to do something to change that in November only 57% of you said youâ€™d be willing to carry a protest sign for a day, and Begala says you aren't likely to change things on Election Day.
â€œPeople arenâ€™t excited. Theyâ€™re not going to run to the polls. Weâ€™re looking at a low turnout in November. Iâ€™d guesstimate it to be in the high 30â€™s,â€ Begala explained. â€œWe celebrate when we get over 50% of the country voting.â€
And that's even though 80% of you are down on our political system, and only 14% of you are giving a 'thumbs up' to the way Congress is doing its job.
