Yesterday, I ticked off a list of major national issues where the American people, according to public opinion polls, are on one side, but President Obama has declared himself against the majority of the people. Another one of these major issues is the matter of building the Mosque on the ground near the 9/11 attack in New York City. Obama supports building the Mosque but 61% of Americans are against it.Obama chose the most leftwing Supreme Court Justice in history, Elena Kagan. He ignored the Gallup poll showing that 42% of Americans want a new Supreme Court justice who would move the Court in the conservative direction, while only 27% want it to move more liberal.
Obama is even pressing for Card Check, one of his many payoffs to the unions, even though 61% of Americans oppose this, according to Voter Consumer Research. Card Check would make it easier for unions to organize workplaces by getting rid of the secret ballot. Obama is still pushing Cap and Trade, which the voters have dubbed Cap and Tax because it will make electricity and all kinds of energy cost every American thousands of dollars a year. CNN reports that 51% of Americans oppose it, and Democratic congressional incumbents who voted for it in the House last year are finding it a big negative in their 2010 campaigns.
More than 8 in 10 Americans believe the deficit is the result of overspending, not a lack of tax revenue. According to a Rasmussen survey, less than one in five voters is willing to pay more taxes to lower the federal deficit because they believe we are already overtaxed. And 58% believe that if Congress raises taxes, Congress will not reduce the deficit but just spend the money on new government programs.
