Americans Say “No” to Keynes

According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 70% of Americans think that deficit spending should be decreased in tough economic times. Rasmussen goes on to say:

Rejection of Keynesian economics is found across demographic and partisan lines. Republicans and those not affiliated with either major party overwhelmingly reject the notion that increasing the deficit is the right prescription in difficult economic times. Among Democrats, 21% agree with the Keynesian approach, and 47% do not.

We’re all Keynesians now, indeed.
