  •  I'd say the problem is that (7+ / 0-)

    many in the putative middle are fiscally precarious & they know it now. Poll after poll  has shown that while Americans are worried about deficits and the national debt, addressing unemployment and improving the economy has consistently been a bigger priority. Years of stagnant wages,high unemployment,disappearing pensions,rising health insurance costs,upside down mortgages,sky rocketing tuition etc. has,quite reasonably,fostered fear. And fear doesn't build social democracies.
