Obama and the Role of Government

In my article on the main site, I suggest that people who voted for Obama out of an abstract desire for change may not be on board if he tries to govern from the far left. If you look at exit polls, it turns out that only a slight majority of the country — 51 percent — said that government “should do more.” While I’d prefer a lower number, I hardly think this counts as a mandate for a sweeping expansion of the federal government. I know that progressive activists will try to push Obama in that direction, but if he follows their agenda, I imagine he’ll meet stiff resistance among the general public.
