geez...are these the same polling folks that said Romney was gaining ground and could win? Or is this the one where you first have to admit you have more than 20,000 in credit card debt to qualify.

Of course the public doesn't want any cuts, who doesn't want more free stuff? After all, the members of both parties have been basically spending money we don't have, to give to people and essentially telling people 'don't worry about it, nobody has to pay for this stuff'. If any good can come from large tax increases (as long as they are broad-based) it may cause at least some people to tune into the fact that things cost money...in other words, as long as everything is free, who is going to complain?

I listened to the Peter Schiff show the other day and he made a good point that in all these polls people will always approve of raising someone elses taxes but he suggested the question be framed like should the Federal government raise YOUR taxes to pay for all this government? the taxes that YOU pay? And he said I bet they say NO!

His point was that even if you took all the “rich’s” money there is not enough to pay for all this government and that the burden always falls on those further down.

PEW published a report last May that demonstrates why you should no longer accept any poll results at face value.

This is a PEW poll. Do not accept it.

This Poll is from PEW RESEARCH. They were pretty accurate in predicting Obama’s victory last year.

It was ironically, the conservative leaning polls that were off in 2012 (Rasmussen, Gallup, even Michael Barone, and of course, Dick Morris ).
