Poll: Ethics now more important than economy

For the first time in a couple of years, a sample of voters has proclaimed ethics and corruption in government to be more important--albeit slightly--than the economy. One might observer that a lot has been done--e.g. stimulus, auto and financial bailouts--to fix the economy, but what, pray tell has been done about ethics and corruption.

Rasmussen poll is here.

  • Wonder what the poll numbers were in Illinois? And will they affect Blago's reelection chances? (Oh, I forgot, he was barred from public office in Illinois, but probably thinks he can run elsewhere, or for his old 5CD seat.) How about Toddy's?

    From what I read in the Sun-Times today, the tar of corruption has even hit Huberman, but he can't be disciplined because he and his aide technically no longer work for the city. Since whe was CPS not part of the city? Of course, the Tribune didn't pick this one up.
