Polls: ‘Conservative values’ in decline.

Recent polls show a “decline in the public’s embrace of the conservative social and economic values that have been the hallmark” of President Bush’s politics. A recent CBS/New York Times poll found nine out of 10 people want “either major repairs to the health care system or a complete overhaul.” The Pew Research Center “found a decline in the intensity of religious beliefs and more acceptances of homosexuals.”
