GkF Roper Public Affairs conducted a poll from September 8-13 by contacting 1000 randomly chosen adults.

Pew also went on to say:
“Independents today are clearly more conservative than they were four years ago, particularly with respect to the role of government. Not only do more describe themselves as conservative, but more support smaller government, and there is more distrust and anger toward government generally.”
It’s clear that the independent voters who elected Barack Obama in 2008 now feel duped by the Democratic National Committee as well as by most of the mainstream media. They voted for a relatively unknown politician who campaigned on “hope and change”. There may have been very little known about Obama in 2008, but once he was elected, we entered the twilight zone of the radical secular-progressive agenda. The truth began to emerge with each passing month, and during this past summer, most of us in denial finally sobered up to the fact that this country is aggressively being dismantled. Concerns include the deterioration of
Free market capitalism
Support for our troops in Iraq and Iran
Stability in the Middle East
Support of Israel
Defense of Europe
Federal balance of powers
Ethics in the Justice Department
Ethics in the White House
Ethics in Congress
Reasonable optimism regarding our children’s future
Domestic security from radical Islam
Support for the United States Constitution
I’m sure you can think of some other areas that are also declining in our nation, but the point is this; The scope and magnitude of these concerns all suggest that the recent polling numbers have captured the mood of the nation. They predict that a reverse course is about to unfold this November. The vast majority of Americans have had enough of this non-sense. We will no longer be bribed with our own tax dollars while we watch America sink into irrelevance. The progressives may have seized the opportunity for power in the aftermath of the Bush administration, but they completely underestimated the character and convictions of the people who represent the fabric and faith of this nation. Let’s hope that our brilliant system of government, developed by our Founding Fathers, will correct the situation before that system is dismantled.
Allow me to close today’s article with two videos that vividly illustrate the current White House thinking that is damaging our nation today.
