44% favor "Tak(ing) Steps to deny automatic citizenship to children born in the US whose parents are illegal immigrants"

I wonder what percent of those 44% also favored reading the US Constitution in the House? Ironic or just sad?

Ezra, the public knows as much about alternative energy as you do about music! (but you really DO have health care down cold, so don't hate me!)

*NOW* you wish to cite polls?

Where was this buring interest in the peoples' will when the Senate was passing ObamaCare bill? I'm sure you saw the polls then. Everyone saw the polls.

Now, somehow, polls are important.

The percentage of people who favor subsidizing alternative energy and the percentage of people who favor expanding oil and gas production totals 148%. Apparently, roughly half the population favors both.

I wonder how many people could accurately characterize the subsidies as they exist today? Probably not very many.
