Polling questions can be slanted to produce any results you want. Witness FOX News polls showing Romney winning while all the other polls showed President Obama winning. Recent polls show that Americans overwhelming favor raising the marginal tax rate on the wealthy a few percent. In the US, a 60-40% split is considered a landslide for the 60%. Most polls now show support for the GOP position on the fiscal slope, a phony crisis, at under 40%, sometimes as low as 30%. I believe those polls are accurate and so does Barack. Only the GOP continue to deceive themselves and the viewers on FOX.
