The people are speaking, through a Gallup Poll, and as Daniel Strauss writes in the Hill, they aren't talking any language the political class understands:

... 86 percent of voters [say] Congress should make its top focus job creation, with 86 percent saying Congress should prioritize work on improving the economy.

Plainly, it is time for some new voters.
