Wealth Redistribution: Proof Americans Don't Want It

From a Gallup Poll in June...

When given a choice about how government should address the numerous
economic difficulties facing today's consumer, Americans overwhelmingly — by 84%
to 13% — prefer that the government focus on improving overall economic
conditions and the jobs situation in the United States as opposed to taking
steps to distribute wealth more evenly among Americans.

Americans' lack of support for redistributing wealth to fix the economy
spans political parties: Republicans (by 90% to 9%) prefer that the government
focus on improving the economy, as do independents (by 85% to 13%) and Democrats (by 77% to 19%).

That's a truly non-partisan agreement, in my opinion. That's why WHAT Obama said to Joe the Plumber is much more important than WHO Joe the Plumber is.
