More bad news for the Obama camp from Rasmussen:
Forty-three percent (43%) of Likely U.S. Voters consider themselves conservative when it comes to issues such as taxes, government spending and business regulation, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Nearly as many (40%) say they are fiscal moderates, but just 13% call themselves fiscally liberal.
In the behind-the-paywall portion of the article, Rasmussen points to two other surveys that confirm the finding above:
This helps explain why most voters have said consistently for years that cuts in taxes and government spending are better for the economy than raising either of them. Roughly half think society would become less fair if the government got more involved in regulating the economy.
Given how far, far left Obama is on economic issues, this is a sign of just how out of touch he is with ordinary Americans, and it also explains why he and his surrogates are trying so hard to talk about anything other than the economy.
