Frustration over debt negotiations a forecast for 2012?
Washington(CNN)-Should lawmakers be concerned about repercussions from action taken during the debt-ceiling debate reverberating to 2012? Two new polls indicate Americans are already thinking that far ahead.

According to a Washington Post/ABC News poll released Tuesday, eight in 10 are either "dissatisfied" or "angry" about the way federal government is working, the highest number since the 1990s. The frustration comes at a time when negotiations to raise the amount of money that the nation can borrow constantly stop and start and the heels of negotiators dig in.

And 63 percent say they’re inclined to look around when the time comes to elect new representatives in November 2012.
