So take it for what it's worth... Poll: Americans Split on What to Cut from Government - Political Hotsheet - CBS News This does not bode well for liberals of any stripe that both wish to protect the spending currently going on, their own pork or the status quo. Big government is now seriously ill, and very well may have to have amputations to save it. The question is, what painful cuts will be coming? About goddamn time the American Public saw the hand writing on the wall. What was really surprising is that even CBS couldn't bias the poll enough to get the figures the other way... so.... yeah... it's a poll and I don't trust them much, but... it's interesting to think this may finally be a trend.
