Democracy Corps Gloom

In the inbox earlier today landed a new Democracy Corps poll (pdf) on Social Security suggesting that the Democrats might be in more trouble than they think. Hm. More on this tomorrow—including why, contra Noam Scheiber's smart commentary, offering a compromise on add-on private accounts might actually be a shrewd tactic. Oh, and various mathematical reasons to think that the GOP would never, ever take that compromise. But not now; it's wa-a-a-a-y past my bedtime.
