From Rasmussen Reports:

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 17% of Likely U.S. Voters think the federal government today has the consent of the governed. Sixty-nine percent (69%) believe the government does not have that consent. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided.

According to the report, this is the lowest level ever measured. But wait, there’s more!

    Fifty-five percent (55%) of the Political Class, on the other hand, feel the government does have the consent of the governed. Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Mainstream voters disagree.

Just wait until the checks stop going out, or, which is more likely, that they just stop being worth anything.
