“There are lies, damned lies, and statistics.” I’ve seen that quote attributed to everyone from Disraeli to Mark Twain. Maybe Twain was quoting Disraeli? Anyway, I’m not sure what to think of this statistic because I really want to believe it and that always makes me suspicious.
Gallup recently conducted a poll, which indicated that the vast majority of Americans view big government as the biggest threat to the country – well over big business and big labor.
It’s interesting because I keep hearing on the mainstream media that the Tea Party is dead and OWS… Well, I guess that’s probably dead too but I think the MSM considers (or hopes) it to be more relevant than the Tea Party. But if this poll is to be believed, then the most Americans are in greater sympathy with the small government Tea Party philosophy and the anti-big business philosophy of OWS isn’t relevant at all.
Has the Tea Party won? Is this wishful thinking on my part?
