Americans won’t ‘throw the bums out’ in 2014

There are two biases that I’ve seen over and over again in the Washington press, and neither is “conservative” or “liberal”. One is a bias towards making a big deal out of something that will ultimately have little electoral effect. The other is propping up the idea that Americans are independent, and that the anger directed at both parties right now will lead to an anti-incumbent wave for both Democrats ad Republicans.

I won’t say that an anti-incumbent wave is impossible, but I will say that it’s not likely. Why? CONT.
