    Where do voters have the least grasp on reality?

    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    You forgot the third option: failing to realize that nobody thinks the government can create a Utopian society.

    90%+/- disapproval rate, 90%+/- re-election rate.

    IOW: Failing to see that their guy is part of the problem as well.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    so dont take this as me trying to defend him but this is one of the problems with obama lying to us. we all expect the president of the united states to be this saving grace who will lead us to "Utopia" and when they fail, we have all of our hopes destroyed. I think it is the dream of utopia that makes it worse than it is (mind you lying=unacceptable so its already pretty bad)

    I am a little sarcasm impaired, but I find it doubtful that this poll is meant to be ironic.

    not meant to be ironic at all, just a statement considered fact. unless you meant it as a joke?

    Many people see each problem as something the government should do something about, even when it doesn't make sense for the government to solve that problem. Sandy Hook is a classic example. If you disagree with what the government is doing about it, many people will ask "Do you have a better idea?". Health insurance is treated the same way. If you oppose ObamaCare, many people will ask you what your alternative plan is.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    I think you need a third option.

    Thinking that sitting at home because you don't absolutely love either candidate is some kind of stand against candidates you don't absolutely love.
    It's okay to be white
