A Poll You Didn't Read About

...until now, that is.

Just 17% of voters say that the federal government represents the will of the American people. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 68% disagree and 15% are not sure. These views are consistent across partisan and demographic lines. Men, women, young, old, Republican, Democrat, conservative, liberal, all offer a bleak assessment of what is supposed to be a “government of the people, by the people, and for the people.”

Sixty-seven percent (67%) of voters say that the federal government has become a special interest group that looks out primarily for its own interest. Just 15% disagree with that assessment

I'm shocked. Shocked, I say.

I'm shocked too. Shocked that 17% of Americans actually believe the federal government is representative of Americans. What are they smoking?
