Political ‘Shock Wave’

Just a few weeks ago, McInturff had characterized the high negative ratings for Congress and the president as “ripples that will take a long time to resolve.” But McInturff is revising and extending his remarks.

“Ripple,” he says, was way too careful.

The word he’s using today is “shock wave.” He says his new polls have broken all records for a generation of NBC/WSJ polling data. He found:

The lowest rating for Obama of his presidency;
The lowest positive rating for the Republican Party;
And for the first time ever, a majority of people choosing not to identify with either political party.

A majority of people choosing not to identify with either political party!
