It’s official: America is full of stupid people.
Ok, maybe I’m going a bit overboard here with this USA/Gallup poll, but if I’m not, I’m buying a cabin in the woods.
I would post the actual poll, but I can’t figure out how to do it on my wife’s Mac. So, here goes:
The poll asked people how they would prefer to tackle state budget deficits:
Cutting state program? 48% oppose, while 47% are in favor.
Cutting pay or benefits for govt. workers? 53% oppose, while 44% are in favor.
Raising taxes? 71% oppose, while 27% are in favor.
Hmmmm…either the people responding to this poll are in on some super-secret way to take care of budget deficits or they have trouble with anything more complicated than sleeping. There are no other options than those offered folks. Now I understand why cutting spending isn’t as easy as it should be. Oh, if you want the pretty graph, along with some others, here you go.
