2.5% is a pretty good ctr, 8% usually suggests a high level of accidental clicks or a very high number of ads - both of these can lead to problems with your account.
I dont block categories except when they are ones I object to seeing on our site such as gambling. Blocking categories is much more likely to decrease income than increase it.

As Rasputin says, 2.5% CTR is pretty good. It just depends on your traffic and how relevant your ads are, which you can really only control by the type of content you have (and even then relevance is not guaranteed). Visitors might also be seeing ads based on their browsing history, which might have nothing to do with politics. You can try placing ads in different positions on your pages (Google has some suggestions about layout), but if you attempt to increase clicks through deception (i.e., putting them too close to navigation, etc.), then you can get into trouble.
