61% in USA Today/Gallup Poll Oppose taking away Collective Bargaining.

It looks like Americans aren't too happy about the Republican version of big government, where they want to give so much power to the government. "It's not the governments right to tell them how to organize. I don't understand how conservatives are taking the side of government," according to one Fox News pundit. 

According to The USA Today:

The public strongly opposes laws taking away the collective bargaining power of public employee unions as a way to ease state financial troubles, according to a new USA TODAY/Gallup Poll. 
The poll found that 61% would oppose a law in their state similar to one being considered in Wisconsin, compared with 33% who would favor such a law. 
71% oppose increasing sales, income or other taxes while 27% are in favor that approach. 
53% oppose reducing pay or benefits for government workers while 44% are in favor. 
48% opposed reducing or eliminating government programs while 47% were in favor of cuts.
