It Does Not Compute

This is why I think the Democratic Party is worried.

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?

This is one of the major flaws of attacking critics of the health care bill, they are better known as voters.

I think Fox won their war with the White House, so it's not going to be easy. Problem is, McClatchey comes out and starts the N-word story based on nothing, doesn't use the word 'allegedly', then the rest glom on and carry the ball while calling Fox partisan. When You Tube vindicates the Tea Party a week later the story's gone from the mainstream and only Fox passes it along. That's why I don't trust these agent provocateurs come election time.

We just hope they don't forget to vote and remember why they are voting.

Meanwhile Fox's ratings have risen significantly. I think it is too far of a rise for it not to have some impact.
