    The notion that governments derive their only just authority from the consent of the governed is a foundational principle of the American experiment.

    However, a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 23% of voters nationwide believe the federal government today has the consent of the governed. Sixty-two percent (62%) say it does not, and 15% are not sure.

    These figures have barely budged since February.

    Like we need a poll to tell us that.

    To be honest, the 23% in that poll is somewhat correct. If they didn't have the consent of the governed, they wouldn't keep being re-elected.
