Stats of the Month
It's less than two months until the midterm elections. Let's play a game called "Where's the disconnect?" Check out these numbers from a new Kaplan Daily-Kaiser-Harvard poll (via the Kaplan Daily) and see if you can spot the disconnect:
57% of independents say the federal government has the wrong priorities.
53% of independents say the federal government hasn't really helped their families.
71% of independents say someone in their family has received unemployment benefits, mortgage interest credit, or Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security payments in the last two years.
These are independents, mind you, not the typical Rethug wingnut "moran." We're doomed.
