What would Nate Silver say, re: hipsterlibertarian:
I think you’re speculating on the poll question here, as “frustration” is not equal to being upset as government action; it could also be interpretated to the frustration many liberals and moderates (like myself) feel about the inaction from Congress on key issues. The above chart shows the partisan politicization on “anger” as well, showing how the attitude towards government are largely viewed through the framing of who is currently elected.
Overall this seems like a leading poll question, when the only two options besides “content” are anger and frustration, both of which are pretty open-ended.
The chart above from Pew Research is part of a larger poll project which showed that most Americans today feel anger, frustration, or distrust toward the federal government. […]
Most? 20/19%? Most?
Key point: “part of a larger poll project.” To wit:
This is all in the link I provided on the words “from Pew Research.” I didn’t include all the graphs because they were less relevant to the topic at hand, and I assumed people would click.
