“Rasmussen’s book makes it clear that voters do understand [the reality of the problems we face] and have given considerable thought to what changes would work. . . . Offers realistic solutions to our most pressing problems—both financially and politically.”
—Dick Morris, New York Times
bestselling author of Screwed!
and former advisor to President Bill Clinton
“A really fascinating read.”
“Fortunately, at least one prominent assayer of public opinion has taken a good look at [polling practices] and is screaming, ‘Pollster, heal thyself!’ . . . Rasmussen looks at America’s dire fiscal predicament through the lens of . . . a simple, neglected insight: Polling voters about broad political sentiments is very different from polling them about specific policy solutions.”
