According to polls in the Huffington Post:
-51% of voters support marijuana legislation,
-66% of voters under 30 and 35% of voters over 65 favor marijuana legislation,
-48% of voters support gay marriage (up from 36% in 2008),
-57% of voters think undocumented immigrants should be allowed to stay in the country and seek citizenship
- And 70% of voters support Obama's plan to help young undocumented immigrants
The country is moving to a center left perspective and is becoming more progressive (historically, we have never become less progressive). Cenk Uygur breaks the numbers down.
I really do, but we said the same thing in 2008 and look what happened in 2010. Personally, I look for the repukes to sell the same bullshit packaged in a different fertilizer bag and Americans will believe it.
