From Josh Marshall linking to an article iin The Washington Post

"Mainly, people want reassurance that the administration knows what it's doing," said Sen. Robert F. Bennett (R-Utah), "that things are going better than CNN would have us believe."

The real point of is not that people back home are getting nervous, but that their representatives, who are supposed to be knowledgeable, are incapable of leading. Read the article and see if you get the sense, as I do, of a group of people, lords and commoners alike, unaware that what they are responding to is the result of their own decisions. It's a negative feedback loop of increasing ignorance.
