Lightbulb Rasmussen poll on support for a return to a gold standard

Quote:
Superpollster Scott Rasmussen has pulled the pin and rolled one of his patented hand grenades under the chair of the Political Class. Rasmussen’s “October Surprise” is contained in a recent poll showing 44% of likely voters favor returning to the gold standard, 28% opposed.

That intensifies. If the public knew that it would “dramatically reduce the powers of bankers and the political class to steer the economy” support goes up to 57%. Opposition drops to 19%.

Reducing the power of bankers and the political class — along with gold’s empirical record of turbo-charging job-creation and economic growth — is core for gold’s proponents. Thus, that inevitably will become public knowledge and make gold a potentially huge electoral asset.

And there’s more. Rasmussen’s results show that 79% of Tea Party voters (and 69% of simply self-described Republicans) would favor such an elitism-constraining gold standard. The only solid majority opposition comes, unsurprisingly, from self-described members of the political class. If anybody picks up on this dynamic it could prove decisive in what remains a remarkably fluid field with early contests fast approaching.

I hope this bodes well for Ron Paul's H.R. 1098: Free Competition in Currency Act.

When Ron Paul (or any other politician) introduces legislation that will ultimately lead to less control for themselves, in an age where control over politicians and the legislative process is of paramount importance, you really have to take a look at that legislation with an open mind.
Don't you?

Yes indeed. For those interested, here is some background on HR 1098:
