Reason #17: Lots of Other People Do Too

A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found that, while people are generally annoyed with President Obama and think his presidency is in decline overall, they are actually at least as pro-taxation as he is, if not more so - 60% are cool with ending the Bush tax cuts in order to boost the deficit, 56% are open to the idea of increased taxes even beyond the pre-Bush levels, and only 37% deem it acceptable to pass a deficit-reduction plan with no tax increases.

So whatever else people may think about Obama right now, they are clearly not interested in handing over the reins to the Tea Party.
