Americans' View on the Issues [NY Times]

The federal versus state question is no surprise, considering current concerns about federal overreaches (a view that's supported by the Times' coupled reporting). In fact, I would suggest that most of the people who prefer "leaving it to the states" are more concerned about the federal government taking something away than they are concerned about some sweeping enforcement.

The big takeaway here is that our majority is solid and will only get more so (the 18-29 set weighed in with 68% support). Our full win is inevitable, even if there is still much hard work to be done.
