Polling On the Patriot Act

I realize there's a genuine debate to be had here. (Of course, only conservatives are having it; our civil-liberties/libertarian conservatives are honestly debating the issue with more authoritarian/national-security-prioritizing conservatives.

But the politics of it continue to hurt the Democrats. Whether they're right or wrong or even right but actually wrong because they're dishonest and partisan in their objections.

62% of the public think the Patriot Act either goes just far enough or not far enough. Only 34% -- which is basically the entirety of the comitted liberal/Democratic base, plus some number of libertarians and small-government loving conservatives -- think it goes too far.
