Gallup: “a very significant state of disrepute”

Gallup: “a very significant state of disrepute” January 18th, 2015

Our pollster friends at Gallup just reported an incredible finding which, if true, suggests that in 2016 an historical counter-election is brewing.  A wolf at the door, as it were. Our caveat is that, much like the watch for potential hurricanes, not every low latitude disturbance actually becomes organized into a full blown Category 5.  Still, the signals are there […]

We see from a recent online report by National Journal that Republicans are oozing back to the swamp of earmarks and special interest favoritism, having succeeded in attracting electorate votes by the puffery of their biennial mating calls. We readily concede that these politicians are a fascinating breed of chameleon—effortlessly able to switch their colors […]
