Were I a less cynical person...

I'd fear that...:

A new survey commissioned by the AARP asks respondents to what degree they support or oppose "[s]tarting a new federal health insurance plan that individuals could purchase if they can't afford private plans offered to them" -- a public option, in other words. The results are interesting, though not necessarily surprising to those who have been closely following the debate.

All: 79 percent favor/18 percent oppose
Democrats: 89 percent favor/8 percent oppose
Republicans: 61 percent favor/33 percent oppose
Independents: 80 percent favor/16 percent oppose

...a sizable portion of our institutional leadership holds all of us in contempt and views their role as portraying us a ill-informed, angry, and all-around miserable.

But, as a cynic, I am already confident that this is the case.
