53% Think Neither Political Party Represents the American People

Rasmussen, April 24, 2014


A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 53% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is fair to say that neither party in Congress is the party of the American people. That’s up six points from 47% last October and matches the previous high found in June 2012 during the last national election cycle. Just 28% disagree, while 19% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

But a plurality (47%) believes the Democratic Party has a plan for where it wants to take the nation. That’s up slightly from the low 40s in prior surveys back to February 2010.  Thirty percent (30%) think President Obama’s party does not have a plan for the future. Twenty-three percent (23%) are undecided.

By contrast, 38% think the Republican Party has a plan for where it wants to take the nation, but slightly more (40%) disagree. Twenty-two percent (22%) are not sure. This is generally in line with past surveys. {snip}

Just six percent (6%) of voters now think Congress is doing a good or excellent job. Seventy-two percent (72%) say it would be better for the country if most incumbents in Congress were defeated this November.

    Oh I don’t doubt for one minute that they both have plans. It’s just that they’re Plan Nine from Outer Space. IOW, they have plans, but I don’t want to go where they want to take us.

      If this were true, it would be a relatively minor thing to rid ourselves of these people. It would be more accurate to say, they both have the same plan, given to them by the same people, and it bears no resemblance whatsoever to what either says or even implies what their plans would be “if elected”. No one is, in fact, elected, and it would not matter if they were. Vastly different lip service on a large number of issues is presented but the policies are always the same no matter who is “elected”. A good example. Obama ran as a radical anti-war candidate…yet his nomination to the democratic party was less than 24 hours old before he started to suggest we needed to nuke Pakistan. Once “elected”, despite that being overwhelmingly unlikely, especially in the wake of all the serious scandals that came our despite (not because) of media coverage, he immediately and continuously escalated war in the middle east. The only difference between him and Bush is, at least Bush came up with semi-credible lies about what he was doing. Obama largely doesn’t bother. The whole thing is one big joke. But what is not a joke is how it literally didn’t matter who was “elected” and just as serious is the fact that no such election took place.
      I have little doubt that those ruling from the shadows are neither as competent nor as well in the shadows as previous generations. But they are hardly stupid or crazy. They are heinously evil and know what they are doing and are quite good at it. The world is firmly in their control and there is little in the way of resistance or even awareness.

      Plan Nine from Outer Space. Nicely done. 🙂

      The social communist Dems have a plan where it wants to take the nation. the Republicans have a plan of where Israel and the international mercantile wants to take the nation. We must take control of the Republican Party and force representation and civil rights for white Americans. We do not vote RP, we vote against the Dems. I have heard smart white people say that we must run blacks, Jews and Hispanics so that we conservatism has a chance. Whites think that we have no validity unless a black, Jew or Hispanic agrees with us.

  • Bobbala

    Democrats do have a plan. Republicans do too. The GOP’s problem is that it’s the same plan and their base doesn’t want the Communist Manifesto.

  • dd121

    To me the left seems very focused with their left-wing agenda. It just seems like the Republicans mill around without purpose and stumble forward to the next election. It isn’t very inspiring. Maybe they’re thinking about what they’ll be doing at the club tonight.

    Seventy-two percent (72%) say it would be better for the country if most incumbents in Congress were defeated this November..

    Let’s wait and see just how many incumbents are defeated. Most of the time we want the other guy to give his despicable rep the boot, while we vote ours back in.

    In any event, we’ll choose among candidates the oligarchs will have provided for us and it won’t make any difference.

    • WR_the_realist

      Both of my senators voted for that immigration bill and I’m sure my Democratic representative will too. I will vote against all of them.

      • tetrapod

        I agree with you. I have always voted against scumbags in my own jurisdiction, regardless of how many buildings and highways are named after them.

        The question is, who can we vote for, except someone who’s been groomed by the same money-polluted system and who’s beholden to all manner of special interests? Is it really possible to actually field, much less elect, a candidate that’s untainted by the current system? And, assuming we could do that, what would we have but some hapless fool with no understanding of how the game is played?

        • Sick of it

          The only way to play the game is to tow the line. Otherwise, you end up marginalized like Ron Paul. It’s an entirely rigged system.

        • Anon

          Study the past 100 years….has anyone gotten their way by voting? A prime example…immigration. This country, from the very beginning has been extremely anti-immigration and non-white immigration was unthinkable. How has that effected various decisions by our government the past 100 years (answers….not one bit).
          Maybe you should vote. Not saying you shouldn’t. But be clear eyed about the fact that your vote goes right in a garbage can. And don’t waste too much time, effort or resources on these people. Instead, focus on what matters. Like owning guns, networking locally with good people are various important tasks (example…neighborhood watch). Develop a base of power. Money is nice but a means of production is far more valuable….the more people need it, the more valuable. Identify locally who is likely to be in charge in the even of a federal collapse. If you don’t like who that is….MOVE. While you still can and before anything like a modern day “iron curtain” goes up.

      • Annabelle Pettyjohn

        someone said this to me “we can vote for whomever we want but when the politicians arrive in Washington, they are taken into a small room and are told now we will tell you how it really is”….It does not matter for whom we vote, the outcome is the same.

    The “American people” are a hodge podge of competing ethnic groups with no common interest other then robbing and killing us Whites. The Whites desire to keep their heads in the sand or to where their liberal nonsense beliefs as fashion accessories while the country burns down. So I would say that over all both parties reflect the desires of the “American people”.

    • Anon

      Whites are no less a hodge podge. There is actually no such race as white people (which makes it all too easy to deny race). There are French, Italians, germans and Spanish, swiss, Afrikaners, Russians, poles, etc. etc. These races had an identity and lived together as extended family with similar values and were loyal to each other. Then, we accepted reracination. All these people were interemixed and ethnically cleansed out of their neighborhoods by a combination of shipping in ultra-violent negros and prosecution of those who defended themselves. They were turned into generic “whites” and so what if many of the constituents hated eachother and refused to work together. Cohesiveness is weak to say the least.
      This is in harsh contrast to say, Germany, before the wars. Racial germans had strong cohesion and that cohesion almost won them control of the world, despite starting with a zero economic, military industrial base. They WOULD have won had they made one change and secured more fuel

  • ONLY 53 percent think that neither party represents us. I suppose the other 47 percent were too busy watching TV and online porn to notice or to care. Both parties serve the interests of the oligarchs as proved by that Princeton U. study that came out a couple of weeks ago.

    No matter who you vote for, you’re always voting for an oligarchist’s puppet.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      The US is not a multiparty democracy. It is a totalitarian dictatorship ruled by a single party, the Party of Massive Third World Immigration and Multiculturalism. You only get to vote for the figurehead.

  • IstvanIN

    I think the 53% represents the true percentage of White in what used to be the US, once you subtract the Arabs and assorted other non-Europeans counted as White, not to mention that the census is no doubt fixed.

  • WR_the_realist

    Finally, an issue with which I can agree with the majority of Americans. Neither party represents us. As for whether the Democrats have a plan, well, indeed they do. But it’s an evil plan. As for the Republicans, they are not only without a plan, they are without a clue.

  • Whitetrashgang

    Who are these 6 percent? Do mental patients now cell phones in their rooms?Or do some people still drink themselves blind during the day.

  • American_cavalier

    The plan for both parties is to dispossess the historical American nation of its birthright.

  • MBlanc46

    It’s a sad statement about the American people that only 53% believe that neither party represents their interests.

    • tetrapod

      I’m actually surprised it’s not higher, given the feeling of malaise that seems to permeate our national psyche.

      • MBlanc46

        Belief in the inevitability of the two-party system is pretty deeply ingrained.

        • Sick of it

          It’s programmed into us from a young age. We’re taught modern politics far more often than what the Founders stood for.

          • MBlanc46

            The impression I get is that the Founders are much too politically incorrect to be taught these days.

    • Evette Coutier

      It’s sad that Obama’s polls are not at 6 percent just like congress.

  • Strike_Team

    It’s too bad so many of the 53% don’t realize the same demons control both parties in the US. Neither party is worth a damn.

  • Anon

    The correct title for this article would be “53% KNOW neither party represents the American People”. Folks….we simply do not have a democracy AT ALL, and have not for a long, long time. Most people understand this to a certain degree. It’s reflected in people’s attitude about voting. They simply do not keep close track of what their politician’s say they represent on various issues because it is pointless. Simply put, no, you cannot get your way on any issue by voting for the guy who would do what you want. First of all, no one does and second of all, elections are obviously rigged now. Almost all people realize that voting is pointless…but only about half understand why. Unfortunately, only a relative handful understand how bad it is. Fewer still understand an important fact about the situation…..freedom and the rule of law are unevenly spread throughout the US. WHERE YOU LIVE largely determines a number of things. How safe you are. How sane your laws are or if they are followed at all. Your right to protect yourself. Your standard of living. How sane your courts are. What you are allowed to do (many places in the US it is SHOCKING the normal everyday things that have been made illegal).
    Whether you live in a dysfunctional police state molested by negros or a good white neighborhood with heavily armed, clear thinking neighbors is largely a matter of choice (for now). The problem is, most whites don’t understand that they have this choice or think somehow they can trade these things for a successful career (allow me to respond to that…..aaaaaahahahahahahahahahah). You would be far better served, no matter your training, education, skills or background, in a small Montana backwater than the richest Chicago neighborhood is very much the issue. Few understand this. Fewer still understand how important this is.

  • I’d like them all hung from lamp posts. Sadly, aside from the Noosemastree ornament I made during the mass noose hysteria some years ago, all I have is fishing line: 20 and 50 pound test.

  • IKUredux

    First of all, don’t EVER believe a poll conducted in this country. They lie. All of them lie. You cannot believe anything “they” say. They have already decided what we should think and believe,.thus their poll results are bogus.. However, one thing is for certain: Nobody represents White people.Actually, at this point in time, one would think that a third party dedicated to being anti-White would be a success. Think about it: We are the Anti White party, we are against macro aggressions, we are against micro aggressions, we are against sub atomic aggressions, we are against pre-natal aggressions by White babies. It would seem I am being sarcastic. I am not. I am deadly serious. Trust me, “they” will “prove” White fetuses are racist.

    • Alexandra1973

      I agree…lots of times these polls are like self-fulfilling prophecies.

    • Whenever I receive an opinion poll call, I hang up. The published results are almost certainly dishonest, which means participating in one is really just the act of a dupe who is giving the faux “results” an aura of undeserved legitimacy. In addition, the politicians clearly don’t give a rip about what the US public wants.

      I very much doubt that the US public wants the country flooded with illiterate, unskilled, Spanish-speaking welfare-moochers. I doubt the public thinks it is reasonable for American astronauts to have to hitch rides into orbit with the Russians. I am absolutely certain that if the US public had been asked, we would not have approved of our tax money being spent to provide food aid for the North Korean army, just so the Pyongyang government there could spend its own spare change developing an atom bomb.

      The American public probably – had we been asked – would not want illegal aliens receiving tax-subsidized in-state university tuition, while – after working to pay those taxes – we have to save for years for college for our kids. What do those illegal aliens major in? Greaserito Studies and Cultural Marxist Studies.

      I’ll bet that if we were asked, we would be willing to have the Post Office reduce mail delivery to five – or perhaps even four or three – days a week, instead of continuing to lose money. Receiving mail only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays would suit me just fine. Most of it is junk that goes straight into the recycle bin, anyway. Nope: the USPS isn’t really a post office, but is instead regarded as make-work for otherwise unemployable blacks and browns. This is really just paid daycare for adults.

      I don’t recall anyone asking me whether invading Iraq sounded like a good idea. Sure, the late and unlamented Saddam Hussein was a criminal, and his later and even less-lamented sons were worse, but the Middle East is a rough neighborhood. For example, our “good friends” the Saudis do not allow women to operate motor vehicles or appear in public without a male family member as an escort. The medieval barbarians there publicly beheaded a woman last year for “witchcraft”. Let’s see: Russian Yuri Gagarin orbited the earth in 1961, American Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon in 1969, and our Arab “allies” are still beheading “witches” as of 2013.

  • mobilebay

    I’m surprised that only 53% think neither party represents us. We haven’t been represented by either in a very long time. All their energies, time and thought go into changing this country into the next third world. They also are determined to keep their places at the public trough for the rest of their lives. It’s so profitable! We no longer count.

    Please help me realize the dream of equality for white

    Everything nonwhites have achieved has been accomplished
    politically. White people do not feel
    represented by the US government (NPR Diane Rehm). The Republican Party takes
    our vote and gives us nothing. The Republican Party has not represented nor
    demanded equal rights for us.

    We live as individuals in a world controlled, dominated and
    manipulated by powerful and powerfully protected minority groups. It is as
    though we are living in an occupied country where all vestiges of power have
    been stripped from us. If we speak out, we are targets. So we are silent.

    The Republican Party has taken our vote and given us nothing
    in return. By not standing for our civil rights, the Republican Party has
    rubber stamped everything the Democrats have demanded for nonwhites including
    our present immigration system.… I want to force the Republican Party at a
    grass roots level to demand representation and equality for white Americans so
    that we may form civil rights groups to protect our interest.


    I am inviting you to help me answer this question. How do we
    create an organization at the national grass roots level that is comparable to
    the Tea Party with two purposes?

    The most important is to force the Republican
    Party to demand representation and equality for white Americans so that we may
    enjoy the equality and civil rights that the Democrats have achieved for

    all legal and illegal immigration until we as a country decide the impact of
    our current immigration system on America?

    What will be the future history of white Americans? How will
    we be portrayed in history books a hundred years from now?

    This is the first time in the history of the world
    that a majority population has given up a country without a war. The “white
    world” is ending without a whimper.

    We cannot change what has happened, but we can
    stop the progression. We do not have to become a powerless minority.

    can stop being reasonable, we can make the stand for equality and civil rights
    with courage and conviction.

    This is the line in the sand. What is the future
    of the generations of white children living as a minority with no rights, no
    representation, hated and ignored.
