who are these people, anyhow?

During elections, I always follow the Rasmussen polls, which strike me as more nearly accurate than any other, perhaps because Raz uses a three-day running average to smooth out the blips. Most recently he writes:

'Who elected these people, anyway?

'Just 23% of Americans believe the federal government truly reflects the will of the people....

'In fact even after two months of their trying to work their way through one of the severest economic crises in the nation’s history, the leaders of both the Republican and Democratic parties in Congress remain unpopular with voters, if they’re even aware who those leaders are.'
So the question seems less to be who elected them than who are they?

Though he makes the obligatory obesience to Barack Obama, Raz was more forthcoming in an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal yesterday. There, Mr Rasmussen and co-author Douglas Schoen noted that Mr Obama's much-touted favorables are lower than Dubya's at a similar point in his presidency. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
