Hope, Change, and Self-Governance

Scott Rasmussen of Rasmussen Reports had an article in yesterday’s WSJ.  Reflecting on his polling data, Rasmussen asserts that Americans want neither Democrat nor Republican candidates or politicians–but rather, a return to self-governance. He also states:

You can hear more of Scott Rasmussen’s predictions on November 30, when he will join us for our 2010 Election Recap.  Scott will be discussing the trends he sees in Connecticut and across the nation.  Sign up today, as space is limited.  Direct all questions to Jessica at (860) 297-4271 or
