Now that the US government passed a new bill to fund the government for a few more months and raise the debt ceiling, several hundred thousand people can return to work and we can go about our business. Coming across a poll
today, I learned that the tea-party has lost a lot of its support and likability, which some attribute to Ted Cruz. So this got me thinking, with mid-term elections coming up next year, how will this affect all parties come roughly this time next year? Will people finally have had enough and vote out more republicans? or will democrats be seen as being not willing to negotiate and be ousted?
Being someone who is more in the center but leans more left than right when it comes to politics, I believe that most people will have forgotten about how close we came to a default and not a whole heck of a lot will change, although I do see more conservative seats being lost than rheir counterparts across the isle.
