Here’s how a Republic is supposed to work: The people elect representatives, who represent them in Congress. If a Republic is functional, and the people are voting in their own best interests, Congress should be an exact statistical representation of the population’s desires. If that Republic is functional. So, Republicans…please explain this one.
According to a new poll from the Washington Post, Republicans have no clue how a Republic is supposed to work. Rather than explaining…well, some screenshots really are worth a thousand words:
Oh, yes, good readers — you are seeing that correctly. A full 72 PERCENT of Americans hate congressional Republicans, leaving about 28 PERCENT who don’t actively despise them. Included among those are 21 PERCENT approve of the GOP’s job performance. But…44 percent are voting for them anyway. So, lets have some fun with math to see how many Republicans don’t understand how a Republic works.
- Approximately 52 percent of Republicans are voting for someone who they believe isn’t doing their job.
- Approximately 13 percent of Republicans are voting for someone they actively despise.
- Approximately 39 percent of Republicans are voting for someone they believe isn’t doing their job…but they like them anyway.
And on a larger scale, even with:
- Only 21 percent of Americans not hating Republicans…
- The House is 53 percent Republican
- The Senate race is about about tied at 50-50
So, Republican voters, we’d love to know…
How are your voting patterns working out nowadays? Still feel like you’re voting in your best interests…you know, like voters in a Republic are supposed to do? Or are you still running on blind, thoughtless hate, and working against your own interests because you don’t like the other team?
