Only a Surprise if not paying Attention

I personally can't understand that anyone who believes that crippling the electric grid by closing down coal fired plants, gutting the health insurance industry, making our foreign policy a laughing stock among nations, millions disenfranchised from the job market, a sluggish GDP and an administration that is uncaring and disconnected from the voters could be a good thing.
But those people do exist.
For the rest of us sanity rears it's head.

Poll: For the midterms, a tilt to the GOP
WASHINGTON — Democrats hoping improvements in the economy's course and the Affordable Care Act's implementation would level the playing field for November's elections should brace themselves.
A nationwide USA TODAY/Pew Research Center Poll shows the strongest tilt to Republican candidates at this point in a midterm year in at least two decades, including before partisan "waves" in 1994 and 2010 that swept the GOP into power. Though Election Day is six months away — a lifetime in politics — at the moment, Democrats are saddled by angst over the economy, skepticism about the health care law and tepid approval of the president.
"People should start opening their eyes and seeing we're not on track," says Brenna Collins, 32, a small-business owner from Kasson, Minn., who was among those surveyed. "Not exactly saying Republicans are right but that things need to change."
By more than 2-1, 65%-30%, Americans say they want the president elected in 2016 to pursue different policies and programs than the Obama administration, rather than similar ones.
In the 2014 elections, registered voters are inclined to support the Republican candidate over the Democrat in their congressional district by 47%-43%. That 4-percentage-point edge may seem small, but it's notable because Democrats traditionally fare better among registered voters than they do among those who actually cast ballots, especially in low-turnout midterms.~snip~
Over the years Americans can be pretty tolerant about almost anything. As long as it doesn't interfere with their ability to raise their children, pay their bills and allow them to aspire to a better quality of life.
That tolerance begins to wane when people begin to lose the ability to determine their direction in life.
After 6 years of the Obama administration dismantling the middle class people are starting to become fatigued by the obstacles placed in their way by progressive/liberal/democrat policies.
So I got to ask, what are the chances that the liberal/commies/democrats will have the will or even the desire to reverse course by 2016?

Yeah me neither.
