Polling Signals Rightward Shift

Not only Rasmussen; Pew affirms.

Independents, who now make up 39% of the electorate, are "more skittish than they were two years ago about expanding the social safety net and are reluctant backers of greater government involvement in the private sector," according to the poll.

Among Republicans, self-identified conservatives have risen since 2000 from 60% to 66%, hopefully high enough to crowd RINOs off the top of the ticket next time around. Among independents, conservatives have risen to 33%, from 28% in 2007.

Wait until the inflation implosion hits.

Inflation is the big one still in the bag. That and consumer debt. We have printed a HUGE amount of money with no backing at all. The "Full Faith and Credit" of the US Government is just about at an end. If we don't start cutting back government largess, there will be none at all.
