Survey Says

A national poll suggests that six in 10 Americans oppose using taxpayer money to help the ailing major U.S. auto companies.

I am fully confident the bailout will pass anyway, just as the financial bailout did.

However, seeing these surveys gives me some faint hope that Rahm "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste" Emanuel, Hank Paulson, Barney "I think we have to recognize the reality that we don't have a choice now of debating whether this is a good or a bad thing" Frank, and their ilk will not be allowed to keep glorifying themseles until they bring our polity to a catastrophic end.

To be clear, Congress should not necessarily vote the way surveys indicate. Our government is not a direct democracy, and rightly so. Rather, I'm plesantly shocked that the majority of Americans oppose bailing out their auto makers.
