I don’t want to get too crazy here, but could it maybe be that, in a down economy, voters express worry and skepticism about their representatives to pollsters but still tend to re-elect them in the voting booth? And that where you see incumbents fall there are generally local or procedural (or, say, the small matter of party-switching) issues at play that are not necessarily part of a larger national swing? Maybe we could make that the new narrative? Or is that too complicated and not sexy enough? Oh, right. Okay, angry voters it is! Except in those cases where it’s not!
