With the economy clearly the big issue on voters’ minds, Democrats and Republicans alike are ramping up the rhetoric with only six weeks to go before critical midterm elections that will determine who controls Congress.
Yet Americans surveyed in the first of a series of ABC News/Yahoo!

I hope so too. It's the system that is perpetrating the problems. Only an educated person wouldn't want this change to happen. Those who vote along straight party lines are a huge part of the problem; endorsing the crap that has become our bureaucratic sludge.

A social conservative has zero change of getting elected in this era- too many people, too many POVs- Look at the places where the bulk of the people live, no way. Fiscal conservative yes, social no way.
