Sixty-five percent (65%) of voters nationwide now hold populist, or Mainstream, views of government. That’s up from 62% last September and 55% last March.
Mainstream Americans tend to trust the wisdom of the crowd more than their political leaders and are skeptical of both big government and big business (see crosstabs). While Republicans and unaffiliated voters are more likely to hold Mainstream views than Democrats, a majority of those in the president’s party (51%) hold such views.
It's why they are mounting a smear campaign against common decent people who simply disagree with the way the nation is headed (and the methods in which it is being run). Nothing criminal about it, nothing immoral about it, and there is damned sure nothing racial about it.
We have been told ad nauseum that feelings are important and not to be ignored. Well....from this usually accurate poll... we can hypothesize that this is how most of the country feels.
When we consider these numbers as factors in calculating fairness, how does it compute that 35% of the population gets to dictate to the majority? How does THAT make you feel?
