Elizabeth Warren Does Well in Peter Hart Focus Group: Voters Not Excited About Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush.
When 12 voters gathered in Aurora, Colorado, for a political focus group on Thursday night, it wasn’t surprising to hear them compete to see who could bash politicians more.
The article really isn’t much and I usually find Dickerson to be of the Ron Fournier, both sides, leadership, yada yada school. However, one person interviewed really stood out as incomprehensible to me:
[Rand] Paul had a bit of the crossover appeal that Warren had. “He’s a reasonable choice,” said Andrew Regan, who described himself as a strong Democrat. “I would consider him, but I don’t know who the Democratic nominee is going to be.” Regan was emblematic of the strong desire for something new. Despite his ideological affiliations, he was happy to see Republicans in control of Congress. “I’m happy to see that Republicans took Congress. Instead of a ‘Do Nothing’ congress we have a ‘Do Something’ Congress.”
Say what?!?! Let me highlight that again.
“I’m happy to see that Republicans took Congress. Instead of a ‘Do Nothing’ congress we have a ‘Do Something’ Congress.”
Someone who describes himself as a “strong Democrat” is happy to see the Republicans keep the House and take control of the Senate because now they’re going to do something. I really have no way of understanding that type of thinking. And that’s not even considering his description of Rand freakin Paul as reasonable.
This country is screwed.
