What conservative country??

Found via The Carpetbagger Report, this new PIPA poll just blows me away.
    A new poll finds that the American public would significantly alter the Administration’s discretionary federal budget. Presented a breakdown of the major areas of the proposed discretionary budget and given the opportunity to redistribute it, respondents made major changes.

    The most dramatic changes were deep cuts in defense spending, a significant reallocation toward deficit reduction, and increases in spending on education, job training, reducing reliance on oil, and veterans. These changes were favored by both Republicans and Democrats, though the changes were generally greater for Democrats.
This is just crazy, on so many levels. It perfectly describes John Kerry's platform.

When thinking American moderates vote for Republicans, just what is it they think they are voting for?
