Government Motors: 2-1 against

It's not every day that I find myself aligned with the vast majority of the US population, but the most recent Rasmussen poll reports that 67 percent of Americans oppose the administration's plan to 'invest' $50 billion into General Motors, in addition to $20 billion already thrown at the company and its highly paid workers. Only 21 percent favor the bailout. Even if the alternative is to let GM go out of business, fully 56 percent say that's just fine with them. As it often does, Rasmussen Reports also polled what it calls the 'political class', and not surprisingly gets a radically different result:

'As on many issues, there is a huge gap between the views of the Political Class and the rest of the nation. By a two-to-one margin, the Political Class says it is better to provide the bailout funding than to let GM fail.'
Among the population at large, the failure option is favored by women, by men, by all age groups, by conservatives, and by moderates. Only liberals are equally divided on the question. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
