Watercooler – An Unscientific Poll For The “Angry Left”
Rayne has been doing an excellent series on the past, present, and future of the "Angry Left". It’s core curriculum material for FDL/Seminal readers. In loose conjunction, here’s a short and unscientific poll I’d like you all to take:
1. Which of the following best describes your relationship with the Democratic Party?
(A) Card-carrying Democrat, through thick and thin.
(B) Generally supportive, but a little upset about the last two years – although I will still vote for Democrats this fall.
(C) Formerly a supporter, but feel quite betrayed by the last two years – and will probably never vote for them again unless they seriously change their ways.
(D) Have always rebelled against the two-party system and see the last two years as confirmation that they are sell-outs.
(E) The Democrats are socialists.
2. When you hear the phrase "third party," you think:
(A) Yes! It’s about time progressives had a true voice in politics.
(B) I’ll consider it, but probably won’t support one because it’ll never work.
(C) You might as well vote Republican.
(D) The night’s just getting started.
You have five minutes. Keep your eyes on your own paper!
What’s on your mind tonight?
