Rasmussen: Only 17% Believe U.S. Government Has Consent Of The Governed

By Art Gallagher

A Rasmussen Reports poll released this morning indicates that only 17% of likely U.S. voters believe that the federal government has the consent of the governed.  69% of the respondents said the government does not have that consent and 14% are undecided. 

Only 8% believe the average member of Congress listens to his or her constituents more than they listen to their party leaders.  84% believe the average congressman listens to party leaders more than constituents.

    that Scott seems to find actual likely-voting Americans, and balances out his poll-taking, however, my concern is, people are justifiably upset at the poor performances by these mainly long-term Congresspeople.. this begs the question for 2012: ok, folks, if they’ve done such a bad job, and I agree they have, then do you plan on clobbering yourselves again next year by voting yet again for YOUR familiar -named representative, or, as I am hearing more people say: dump the entire bunch and START OVER, it can’t be much worse than the horrible lack of leadership we have now!.. in other words: GRIP, get rid of them, and support a change in your OWN district, or we will keep getting more of the same crap!..
