According to a new set of numbers you arenât happy with how things are being done in Washington, DC. But while Washington should be worried about this, analysts arenât sure youâre 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 donât 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.
âPeople arenât as well off as they were nine years ago. Thereâs no doubt about that,â Begala said. âThere are a lot of people out of work. Itâs 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 youâd be willing to carry a protest sign for a day, and Begala says you aren't likely to change things on Election Day.
âPeople arenât excited. Theyâre not going to run to the polls. Weâre looking at a low turnout in November. Iâd guesstimate it to be in the high 30âs,â Begala explained. âWe 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.
