Status of American Politics: November 2005 Archives

The Wall Street Journal's Nov. 17 poll shows public confidence in our political parties and government continue lower. With ratings in the 30% and less range, it appears all time lows in confidence are at hand. The sentiment for an anti-incumbency groundswell is there for 2006. What is missing is a focus for action by Americans entering 2006 voting booths.

Vote Out Incumbents for Democracy is a start up organization hoping to provide that focus of action in 2006. VOID, as they call themselves, are even rumbling about a coalition effort among third parties toward a concerted anti-incumbency focus to force the Democratic and Republican Parties to negotiate lower ballot barriers to third party candidates in exchange for backing off an anti-incumbency focus by their constituents, which could threaten majority status and aspirations in Congress.
