I love a graph

I love graphs, especially those that show data I approve of. In this instance I disapprove of the UK's coalition government and YouGov's latest poll shows that almost as many of my fellow citizens disapprove of the coalition as approve. Given that government's approval ratings tend to start high, then decline slowly, is this an ominous sign?

Is that another way of saying "and the majority disagree with me"?

I can't see net approval ratings lasting long though. When people stop getting stuff funded on the never-never and have to start either paying for them (with tax hikes) or having them cut, they'll throw spit out their dummies and wail "it's not fair!" and cry. As the Baroness said, "the problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money"
