From today’s WaPo :
“Eighty percent of Americans agree on almost nothing (even Olympic swimming !).
But a Quinnipiac University poll  released Thursday found exactly such consensus on one of the central issues  in the debate over the “fiscal cliff”: 85 percent of registered voters, including 77 percent of Republicans, said it was a “bad idea” for members of Congress to promise to “never increase taxes on corporations or the wealthy under any circumstance”.
While not explicitly mentioned in the poll question, the result has been widely interpreted as gauging support for the anti-tax pledge  advocated by Grover Norquist and his group, Americans for Tax Reform.”
