This comes as no surprise, seems anything so intimately suck-holed to the Democratic party is losing popularity! I guess their just but well paid off with Obama bucks. Poll: Labor unions losing popularity By Eric Zimmermann - 09/07/09 10:08 AM ET Since it's Labor Day, it's worth highlighting the results of a Gallup poll from last week: Labor unions have become markedly less popular in recent years. Just 48% of Americans approve of labor unions. That's an 11% drop from last year, and a 17% from drop 2003. While most Americans (66%) believe labor unions are beneficial to their own members, a slim majority (51% to 39%) think unions hurt the overall economy. Public opinion is split on whether unions help specific companies. The implications of this for card-check are, well, not so great.
