Rasmussen had this headline out today: 48% Think Spending Cuts Could Trigger Violence.
Nearly one-out-of-two Americans (48%) think that cuts in government spending are at least somewhat likely to lead to violence in the United States, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. But that includes just 13% who feel it's Very Likely.
My guess is that the respondents of this poll have a bit of a London hangover. Any adjustments to Social Security or Medicare will be phased in over a number of years. Thus, any 'rioting' would be from people that will not be eligible for either of these for a number of years yet. But I gotta tell you, I'd love to see the Man with no name ride again. Even if he's 81!
