Polls regularly indicate the majority of Americans are not happy with the direction of our federal government. Yet other polling shows that voters don’t know who the candidates are who, if elected, will be at the controls. We suspect that type of citizen isn’t entirely new. We become more aware of them at election times.

One would think that if citizens are concerned about the course this country is on they would be more attentive to what’s going on in politics, who the candidates are, and would be active participants in the process. However, polls also tell us some people of voting age don’t know the dates for the primary and general elections. And we all know citizens who have not bothered to register to vote.
