Rasmussen released the results of its latest poll on Thursday that shows 53% of likely voters think neither party in Congress represents the American people. On radio this morning, Glenn actually found himself surprised that figure is not closer to 90%.
“I’m surprised it’s that [low], frankly,” Pat said. “It should be around 90% by now.”
Glenn pointed to the letter just 22 Republican senators sent to President Obama on Thursday in regards to his “astonishing disregard for the Constitution” when it comes to immigration and deportation as further proof of the problem with the current parties.
“Did you see they have this new letter that went to the President about immigration? You know, ‘You’re throwing us into constitutional chaos by picking and choosing laws,’” Glenn said. “Did you see that Lindsey Graham (R-SC) did not sign? Did you see that Jeff Flake (R-AZ) didn’t sign?”
“Has there been a bigger disappointment than Jeff Flake,” Pat asked.
“I don’t think so,” Glenn responded. “He has turned into Harry Reid… I mean, it’s just like, what happened to you, Jeff?”
There is little to no distinction between the big government element of the two parties. And, as a result, Glenn believes in a couple of years time upwards of 70% of likely voters will be saying the parties do not represent the American people.
“Wait until the next two years,” Glenn concluded. “I bet that number is 65 to 70% by the time we get to the presidential election.”
