That's a Relief...

Though it may mean at least 4 years of pain. Apparently Americans aren't becoming increasingly economically Liberal. According to a Gallup Poll:

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. . . . A separate question finds Americans more likely to believe government is doing too many things that should be left to individuals and businesses (50%) as opposed to saying government should do more to solve the country's problems (43%).
Given how they've been abandoning the Republican Party, I guess it means they've decided that the Republicans as they are now won't help them get what they want. They're probably right. (h/t Instapundit)

Update: Possibly even more encouraging is the graph that they use here:
