The First Polls

America's priorities are pretty close to the Dish's:

The poll delved deeper into specific aspects of the agreement and found support for spending cuts but opposition to the lack of tax increases for wealthy Americans. Specifically,

65 percent approve of $1 trillion in cuts in government spending over the next 10 years (30 percent opposed)

60 percent disapprove of the fact that the agreement does not include any tax increases for businesses or higher-income Americans

This is the battleground over which politics will now be fought. Advantage: Obama, balance and compromise.
