Since starting this blog, I’ve periodically shared polling data that gives me hope. Highlights include:
o More than two-to-one support for personal retirement accounts.
o Recognition that big government is the greatest danger to America’s future.
o Strong support for bureaucrat layoffs and/or entitlement reforms instead of higher taxes.
o And my favorite poll results are the ones showing that voters understand that the goal is less spending, not lower deficits.
Now there’s some new research that is both encouraging and educational. Here’s part of the report from The Hill.
