The Wall Street Journal’s John Fund writes about “America’s Insurgent Pollster,” Scott Rasmussen.
Rasmussen says “that only 23 percent of the people in this country believe today’s federal government has the consent of the governed.
“Americans don’t want to be governed from the left or the right,” Scott Rasmussen tells the American Legislative Exchange Council, a conference of 1,500 conservative and moderate legislators. “They want, like the Founding Fathers, to largely govern themselves with Washington in a supporting — but not dominant — role. The tea party movement is today’s updated expression of that sentiment.”
