Dakinkat cites a couple of polls with interesting results
: Gallup polled a whole bunch of Texans and found that the folks out there don't really like their governor. (What's his name again? Mighty Joe Young? Kong? Something like that.)
The poll, released Tuesday, showed Perry with a negative approval in Texas: while 45 percent of the state’s voters approve of Perry’s job performance, 48 percent of Texas voters say they don’t approve.
Meanwhile, a Marist poll has similar, albeit slightly worse, figures for President O:
According to this McClatchy-Marist Poll, the president’s approval rating is at 39% among registered voters nationally, an all-time low for Mr. Obama. For the first time a majority — 52% — disapproves of the job he is doing in office, and 9% are unsure.
Behold, the magic of American democracy: Two politicians disliked by their constituents seem likely to head the tickets of their respective parties.
the system doesn't work?
