[M]ore than seven in 10 are dissatisfied with the current state of the economy, and just more than a third are either “very” or “fairly” confident in Obama’s ability to promote a strong and growing economy.

Remember what H. L. Mencken wrote:

Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.

Sigh.
