All these polls showing that individual Obama's ideas are rejected are accurate, but what does it mean? He still got re-elected. He passes out the candy and everyone will vote for the candy man. Not enough people understand that the candy will run out if Obama keeps getting his way on economic policy. I fear that we will have to ACTUALLY run out of candy before these dolts get a clue. Then the rioting begins..........

I think they are hoping everyone will come begging him for help and see him as their only hope. I agree it could try ugly. Bring it, I say! The riots will destroy the cities that's all.

Since most of the data in post-election polling has offered little beyond a parade of ugly news, here's a glimmer of hope from Gallup:

For the first time in Gallup trends since 2000, a majority of Americans say it is not the federal government's responsibility to make sure all Americans have healthcare coverage. Prior to 2009, a majority always felt the government should ensure healthcare coverage for all, though Americans' views have become more divided in recent years...Republicans, including Republican-leaning independents, are mostly responsible for the drop since 2007 in Americans' support for government...
