“23 separate polls” vindicate the President’s political calculation to call for “shared sacrifice” via increased taxes on the wealthy

Andrew Sullivan tells it like it is:

23 Separate Polls. They all show heavy majorities (most in the mid-60s) in favor of raising taxes on the wealthy as part of a deficit reduction plan. Yet this is the one issue on which Republicans seem determined to take a stand. If the Democrats cannot marshall 2 – 1 support for their policies into actual legislation, they really need to pack it in as a viable party (although one could argue they packed it in years ago).
