    A nice series of polls published in Strib last week show that the last legislative session, DFL (Dem) dominated passed laws that are highly popular.

    Most notably, the tax raise on the rich was favored by about 56-34%. Marriage equity was approved by majority, but a close margin.

    This shows that Dems did not over-reach while controlling legislature and governor. Indeed, they did what people voted for them to do.

    This should lead to Dayton winning more easily in 2014. Repubs don't have anyone inspiring on their bench, either. Just a bunch of whiners.

    •  Good to hear on that poll. (0+ / 0-)

      I didn't see it, so thanks for sharing.
