With three weeks remaining to mid-term elections, a new Bloomberg poll shows that voters are unhappy with both parties. Despite their unpopularity, the GOP appears to have the edge heading into the elections. Political science department chair Graham Wilson offers the following view:

“Much research on public opinion takes a dim view of the average citizen. Here’s more evidence to support that view:

“Cut the deficit but don’t cut any major program. We hate the health care law except for the part – requiring everyone to have insurance – that might save the average citizen money. And then end by attacking American politics.

“Perhaps the American voter should revisit Shakespeare: The fault dear Brutus is not in the stars but in ourselves.”
