Politicans, It's like they don't even know us

According a recent study, US politicians see a significantly more conservative constituency than the constituency than they actually represent. Conservative politicians by 20%, liberals by 7%.
So if you've ever felt like politicians don't represent you, you're probably right, with many of them representing notional states more conservative than any state in the union.
This goes some way to explaining why congress has a 9% approval rating, and Bill Maher's "conservative bubble" or why Fox News is the most distrusted news source in the US and paradoxically the most trusted.
