73% of GOP Voters Say Congressional Republicans Have Lost Touch With Their Base

This had to catch the attention of the Rick and Kay campaigns (link). Excerpt follows...

Just 15% of Republicans who plan to vote in 2012 state primaries say the party’s representatives in Congress have done a good job of representing Republican values.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 73% think Republicans in Congress have lost touch with GOP voters from throughout the nation. Twelve percent (12%) are undecided.


Republican women are nearly twice as likely as men to say their representatives in Congress have done a good job of representing GOP values. Younger voters tend to be less critical than their elders.

Being a Washington insider right now is political poison. Kay truly has become a creature of Washington after almost 17 years there... she made all kinds of promises on ethics reform and term limits back in the early 1990s... and subsequently broken all of those promises. She criticizes the revolving door of lobbyists but has lobbyists on her staff and many members of her staff become lobbyists...

Kay talks one way in Texas and votes another way in Washington... Republicans are angry at Washington insiders, and I think Rick and his team need to refocus the attention on the fact that she is not just a senator but truly a typical Washington politician just like all the others that are why Republicans fell hard on their face in the past few years.

Hey now, campaign characters. Be nice. I know a lot of you on both sides, so I don't want any overly foul language, personal attacks on anyone other than the candidates themselves, or other party fouls. I will moderate the heck out of you if you start breaking the bounds of civility.
