D.C. Means "Dis-Connect"

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF
Only 26% of the public believe President Obama will be re-elected as President in 2012.

However, in Washington D.C. among the political elites, 49% believe he will be re-elected.

While President Obama may find great comfort from those in the District, the rest of us seem to see things very differently.

Why is there such a dis-connect between the politicians and the citizens?

Two different worlds, we live in two different worlds, as the song goes.

Seventy percent (70%) of DC elites admit the economic mess has not necessarily affected them as much as regular people---the average citizen.

Seventy percent of the elites (70%) see the Tea Party movement as a fad. Oh my.

Eighty one percent (81%) of those who believe the President will not be re-elected, believe the country is headed in the wrong direction.

Eighty two percent (82%) of them see the economy heading in the wrong direction and overwhelmingly want Obama's Health Care bill repealed.

This is a link to
POLITICO's story and the poll.

Obviously there is a significant dis-connect between those who serve and the people they are supposed to be serving.

Much communication will be needed in the coming months. Our job is to help these leaders get connected to the real world where we live.

Be Prayerful. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be A Connector. Be Blessed.

Thank you for
your support of what we do. God bless you.
