Po­lit­i­cal an­a­lyst Char­lie Cook, writ­ing at na­tion­aljour­, says a re­cent fo­cus group as­sem­bled by poll­ster Peter Hart shows just how an­gry vot­ers feel to­ward Congress.

“One telling mo­ment came af­ter Hart asked each voter to write the name that comes to mind when they think of Congress,” Mr. Cook said. “Bill, a 62year-old re­tired au­to­mo­bile-in­dus­try ex­ec­u­tive and in­de­pen­dent who backed Obama, wrote ‘Satan.’ When Hart asked why, Bill an­swered, ‘Be­cause I wasn’t sure of the cor­rect spell­ing of “Beelze­bub.”’ Now that’s in­ten­sity.”
