New Pew Research Study:
63% of Americans have a favorable opinion of their local government.
57% have a favorable view of their state government.
Only 28% have a favorable opinion of the federal government.
71% of Republicans and independents who live in Republican-led states have a favorable opinion of their state government.
64% of Democrats and Democratic leaners in Democratic-led states have a positive view of their state governments.
Democrats living in Republican-led states have a 50% favorable opinion and 46% have an unfavorable opinion of their state government.
(In other words, more Democrats living in a Republican-led state have a more favorable opinion of their state government than Democrats in the same state who don't. Revealing.)
Democrats' opinion of government has fallen 20 percentage points since July 2009, six months after President Barack Obama took office. The Republicans' favorable opinion is down 11 percentage points.

Boston police say there’s been a third explosion in the city, following two blasts near the finish line of the Boston Marathon that killed two people and injured many others.

Police Commissioner Edward Davis says authorities aren’t certain that the explosion that occurred more than an hour later at the JFK Library was related to the other blasts, but they’re treating it as if it was.

Davis says there are no injuries stemming from the third explosion. The total numbers of casualties from the other blasts isn’t known.

Davis urged people to stay indoors and not congregate in large groups.

Police say they received no information before the explosions to indicate they were coming.

A person of interest is IN custody!
NOT necessarily a 'suspect' YET!

Over 100 people now being treated at Boston area hospitals. Democrats confused how Obama gun legislation didn't include bombs.

One smart Democrat proposes bombs now only hold a single round.

The survery was conducted among 1501 adults. Pretty much the average number in most polls.

It's just different because you obviously don't like the results.

72% of Americans don't appreciate your love of big government - seeing how you've been defending Obama since day one.

Sorry if that makes you unhappy.

As usual the media, with no details, is simply making up their own. Hah breaking news is followed by developing news__that means developed by talking heads.

If I'm the police I want to see the cell phone images from anyone who was within a block of the larger explosions prior to and just after the blasts. Eyewitnesses to these sorts of events can't remember sht but those little cameras capture everything and there were plenty of them visible in the early news footage.

Some experts are thinking a homegrown bomber or group. As a matter of history many of the homegrown bombers/shooters have struck during mid April.

It's impossible to protect an entire big city marathon route.

The Pew Research poll only showed Democrats had a more favorable opinion than Republicans of the federal government 41% to 13%.

No surprise. Likely, the largest percentage of those dependent on government are democrats.

What's most interesting is the Democrats' opinion of the federal government falling 20 percentage points since July 2009 while the Republicans' favorable opinion is down only 11 percentage points.
