Nice Job Public

I hate public opinion polls for the most part. But if politicians are going to listen to them, I like the message the public is sending in the Gallup/USA Today poll.

In the poll, 61% of adults nationwide said that they would oppose a law that would take away some collective bargaining rights for state employees, including teachers. Only one third, 33%, said that they would support that measure if it were proposed in their state.
The question, of course, is whether right wing media and conservatives in general can find a way to frame this issue that scares a large percentage of Americans into believing that worker's rights really are a threat to the American way of life. I bet they are already working on it.
