    Pew surveyed 1,525 adults from March 8-14. The poll's findings suggest the political losers so far have been Republicans, who rode a wave of voter irritation to win control of the House of Representatives last fall.

    After the election, 35 percent said Republicans had a better approach to the deficit, expected to reach a record $1.65 trillion this year. This month, that number has plunged to 21 percent.

    People don't think Obama has better ideas, either — 20 percent found his approach better, down from November's 24 percent. Total sample margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.

    The most restless constituency has involved supporters of the conservative tea party movement. After the November election, where backers helped elect dozens of congressional Republicans, three of four movement supporters liked GOP budget plans. This month that figure dropped to 52 percent.

    "People are growing impatient," said Carroll Doherty, Pew associate director.

    Uh, not really. From your link:
    That would be both parties.
    What this poll tells me is that voting either republican or democrat is throwing away your vote because they're the same.

    Sure they are. See all those Democrats calling for an end to unions, not. Don't suggest Democrats and Republicans are the same. Hell no two Democrats are exactly the same and considering the breach in the Republican Party one might argue that all Bachmann/Palin Republicans are the same but the rest of the GOP actually seems to think. Sadly the latter R's are in the minority.

    Everyone loves polls when they show the public agreeing with them.

    It's clear to me the current GOP leadership isn't really serious about deficit and debt reduction. If they were, we would be seeing a bill or bills requiring a balanced budget, instead of what we do see - them making a little show of trying to bail water out of the Titanic, using coffee cans.

    All that said... Polls are worthless right now. They have some worth to them, during a campaign cycle, however.

    Obama has Goldman Sachs execs in his cabinet, unlike Bush right?
    Obama even kept Sec of Defense Gates who is a Trilateral Commision, CFR and Bilderberg Group member. Ever hear of those organizations? Of course you haven't. I'll leave this link here but I know you won't look at it, because it'll force you to rethink what you already know. (And don't know)
    Roster of CFR/Trilateral Commission Members

    Have you EVER done any background investigation (as easy as "googling") into ANY of Obamas Cabinet members?

    Of course you haven't.
