This may be the most useless poll ever commissioned. And that includes Public Policy Polling’s “Transformers or Voltron?” poll of summer 1986.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 75% of likely voters now say they are at least somewhat angry at the government’s current policies, up four points from late November and up nine points since September. The overall figures include 45% who are Very Angry, also a nine-point increase since September.

Just 19% now say they’re not very or not at all angry at the government’s policies, down eight points from the previous survey and down 11 from September. That 19% includes only eight percent (8%) who say they’re not angry at all and 11% who are not very angry.

This certainly tells me a great deal about the American electorate’s ability to have emotions about vaguely concerning things. Next up, a poll on whether people think that fun is entertaining.
