Poll finds lots of anger

Though they think the economy is improving, two-thirds of Americans surveyed are “angry” about the way things are going in this country, according to a new USA Today/Gallup Poll. What's more, 60 percent of those surveyed said that they would rather vote in November for a candidate who has never been in Congress. Though that could spell trouble for all incumbents, it likely could cause more problems for Democrats, as the poll found 50 percent of Republicans were “extremely motivated” to vote this year, compared with 30 percent of Democrats.
