  • How do Americans, Europeans, and the Chinese compare in their attitudes about entrepreneurship?
  • We examine entrepreneurship from several angles. Does your education prepare or encourage you to be an entrepreneur? How do you feel about entrepreneurs themselves? How hard is it to start a business? Have you ever tried to start your own business?
  • With the final space shuttle launch approaching, Americans continue to be more enthusiastic about space exploration than about paying for it. See how attitudes have changed over time.
  • Americans remain extremely proud of their country, but are highly critical of the way things are heading right now.
  • How serious are people taking the debt limit debate? What do they think should be done? We investigate ten questions on the issue, paying particular attention to partisan differences.
  • We evaluate Obama's performance by looking at his overall approval rating, his handling of economic and foreign policy issues, and how many say they would re-elect him.
  • While Obama defeats a generic Republican candidate, how does the stack up against the actual candidates? We examine four pollsters and their comparisons.
  • Opinions on the Tea Party-we look at five major pollsters to see if attitudes have changed since last year.
