Kyle Smith is highlighting a book that gives us insight into why those in Washington are so disconnected with the rest of us.
This is why Trump will win!!!
“How dumb do Washington bureaucrats think you are? Really amazingly dumb. Now we have hard data to prove it.
Instead of polling Americans about Washington again, a pair of academics at Johns Hopkins tried something new — polling Washington about Americans. What they found was a combination of ignorance, contempt and disdain.
Survey data from the polled group — staffers from the White House and Capitol Hill plus career civil servants and the policy community of lobbyists and others who work closely with government from outside it — indicate that the functionary class thinks of itself as our betters. Our bosses, not our representatives. They see their own judgment as being far superior to that of the rest of us — the people whose wishes they are supposed to be carrying out.”
