Did yesterday's primary race results in Michigan and Kansas send mixed messages? Is the Tea Party still viable?
A WSJ/NBC poll shows that seven in 10 adults blamed their dissatisfaction more on Washington leaders than on any deeper economic trends, and 79% expressed some level of dissatisfaction with the American political system.
What impact will this have in November? Some political commentators are saying "not much". First, because Americans voting behavior doesn't reflect their anger. It is far easier to indict an abstraction, i.e. Congress than it is their own representative, who many feel IS doing the job they were sent to Washington to do.
And secondly, unless you are someone with keen political interest and involvement in your local/national races, you simply don't bother to vote. Mid term turnout is expected to be low in November -- past averages have been only 40%.
