Americans prefer zombies over the federal government

It’s not exactly a vote of confidence in the powers that be: A sizable number of Americans think the undead would do a better job than the brain dead in Washington, D.C.

Thirty-seven percent (37%) of American Adults believe the federal government would do a better job than zombies running the country today. But the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that most Americans don’t share that view, with just as many (37%) who feel zombies would do a better job running the country and another 26% who can’t decide between the two.

These findings are no surprise, given that 64% of Likely U.S. Voters now view the federal government unfavorably, with 34% who have a Very Unfavorable opinion of it.

Fifty-six percent (56%) of Democrats still pledge allegiance to the federal government, but pluralities of Republicans (45%) and those not affiliated with either major political party (44%) have more confidence in zombies when it comes to running the nation’s affairs.

Only six percent (6%) of all Americans anticipate a zombie apocalypse, so supporters of the federal government can rest easy. Eighty-two percent (82%) do not, but 12% are not sure.

Among those who expect an apocalypse, 74% say they are at least somewhat prepared, with 53% who are Very Prepared.

The survey of 1,000 Adults was conducted on October 29-30, 2013 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Forty-one percent (41%) of Americans nationwide say they have watched a movie like “World War Z” or a TV show like “The Walking Dead” about a zombie apocalypse.

But only five percent (5%) think the recent boom in zombie-based books, films and TV shows is good for society. Thirty-five percent (35%) see this recent popularity as bad for society, while 51% say it has no impact.

Most adults 65 and older think the zombie craze is bad for society. Most younger adults say it has no impact.

Americans ages 18 to 64 express slightly more confidence in zombies to run things than in the federal government. Seniors have more faith in the government.

Men are more likely than women to think zombies would do a better job running the country. Blacks are more than twice as likely as whites and other minority Americans to believe the government would do a better job than zombies.

Americans who expect a zombie apocalypse express a lot less confidence in the federal government.

Just 25% of voters think the country is heading in the right direction, although that’s up from 13% during the recent federal government shutdown.

Fifty-four percent (54%) want a long-term budget deal that cuts federal spending, but 64% expect another shutdown soon because Congress can’t reach such a deal.

Fifty-six percent (56%) of voters consider the federal government a threat to individual rights rather than a protector of those rights.

the powers and rules of the HOA are clearly stated before the property is purchased...and the HOA is much easier to deal with than the typical municipal government...you know, the big dictators...

HOAs are useful if you want to live in a neighborhood where your neighbors can't park RVs and boats in their driveway or on the street, leave junk cars in the yard, or paint their houses pink.

George initiated the HOA program, the Sanford Police Department NW liaison made the presentation at a HOA meeting and furnished the pamphlets, signs and so on. She testified during the trial__clearly smitten by George she wanted him to apply for the Citizens on Patrol program. Another HOA member testified that it was assumed that George would be in charge. George also took an active roll on the parking committee.
the HOA was foolish to get involved and even more foolish to pay off the zombies, unless the insurance company insisted...

Why had Obama not yet blamed the insurance companies for his mess and incompetence on Obamacare?

Just wait, he will soon blame health insurances. It is just a matter of time!

That's all he does, blame others!

Yes, actually I do. The sooner, the better.

Just wish an "all black" person like Condi Rice or Dr. Ben Carson were there instead.

Obama is not only confused - but has felt a certain kind of guilt - about his skin color and being raised by whites. Always has been. Just read his book.

But I'm sure you'd be perfectly happy with a black radical rightwing conservative - the more rightwing, the better.

Because you wouldn't be racist now, would you?

Republicans successfully converted the 2010 elections into a referendum on President Obama, the economy, and liberal overreach. As a result, they won big. Now Democrats are hoping to turn the 2014 elections into a referendum on the GOP brand and the destructive excesses of Tea Party governance.

The GOP just might help Democrats succeed.

Polling released this week by the Washington Post and ABC News found the GOP’s unfavorability ratings among Americans at an all-time high of 63 percent.

But a closer look at the numbers reveals that this has been accompanied by a massive collapse in 2013 of the GOP brand among core constituencies important in midterm elections: Independents, women, and seniors. The Post polling team has produced a new chart demonstrating that in the last year — since just before the 2012 election – there’s been a truly astonishing spike in the GOP’s unfavorable ratings among these core groups:
