    what the fuck are all these letters doing in my alphabet soup?..., 2011-11-10 01:31:03 | Main | "free", as in free near beer for all my friends..., 2011-11-30 00:08:56

    a fundamentally center-right, fiscally conservative country that is obsessed with deficits:

    12% of Americans disagree with the statement "The current economic structure of the country is out of balance and favors a very small proportion of the rich over the rest of the country. America needs to reduce the power of major banks and corporations and demand greater accountability and transparency. The government should not provide financial aid to corporations and should not provide tax breaks to the rich".

    More than double that, 32%, disagree with the statement "The national debt must be cut significantly by reducing spending and the size of government, including eliminating some federal agencies and programs. Regulations on business by the federal government should be reduced and instead, the private sector and individuals should have greater control. The government should not raise taxes on anyone."

    Agreement is 76% to 53% respectively.

    NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll conducted by the polling organizations of Peter Hart (D) and Bill McInturff (R). Nov. 2-5, 2011.
