Views from Washington

Campaign 2012: The view beyond the beltway

We’re just nine months away from the next presidential election. As Washington fixates on the campaign, we want to know what the mood is like in your part of the country. Polls have underscored voters’ disconnect with -- and anger toward -- official Washington. So we figured we ought to get out of our Washington and come to yours.

There are more than 90 cities and towns across the country
that have ‘Washington’ in their names.
