While analysts continue to debate whether America is a center-right or center-left country, Rasmussen shows that the American people still pretty much agree with Ronald Reagan:
It's a fascinating finding, particularly when Democrats and President Obama are so eager to reject tax cuts supported by Republicans in favor of more government spending. If their plan fails to revive the economy, it'll be very difficult to explain to an already skeptical populace why they stuck with a massive pork-barrel bill instead of reducing barriers to economic growth.
And if I may observe, was it really necessary to slam a Nobel Prize winner just to make a point?
