Poll: Public frustrated at Congress, political parties
"It's a 'Jet Blue' election ... Everyone is headed for the emergency exit."Video
Poll: Economic anxiety casts shadow over Obama .Advertisement | ad info
. By Mark Murray
Deputy political director

NBC News

WASHINGTON To borrow the famous line from the 1976 film "Network," Americans are mad as hell at Washington and theyre not going to take it anymore.

That, at least, is the conclusion from the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, which finds:

that less than half the country approves of President Obama's job;
that the percentage believing the current Congress is either below average or among the worst is at an all-time high;
that the number viewing the Republican Party favorably is at an all-time low;
and that the Democratic Party doesnt fare much better.
What's more, nearly six in 10 respondents still say the country is headed in the wrong direction, and almost two-thirds think that the U.S. economy has yet to hit rock-bottom.

And it's unlikely those attitudes will change before the midterm elections that will take place less than three months from now.

"I think its a Jet Blue election. Everyone is frustrated," says Democratic pollster Peter D. Hart, who conducted the survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff. "And everyone is headed for the emergency exit."

13. Finally, everybody is getting the idea that "they" are for "them"
and haven't been "for us" for a Hell of a long time now, and I'm sure when they go out for a beer together they laugh their heads off at "us".
