Surveying Mr. and Mrs. Smith

The Drum Major Institute, a nonpartisan think tank, has just released its First Annual Survey on the Middle Class and Public Policy.

A telling highlight:
"When it comes to gas prices specifically, adults are skeptical that gas prices will normalize – despite regular reports of Hollywood breakups, 56% of households believe that Brangelina is more likely to celebrate their 25th anniversary (56%) than gas prices are to return to $3 per gallon (19%). (Another 18% believe neither option will come to bear.)"
Also in the report: Americans disapprove of Congressional job performance but overall don't know how their members of Congress voted on certain issues or bills. (Actually, that seems like a contradiction, but it's not.)

More fascinating data to mine while waiting out today's state Primary Election!
