23% say we spend too much, and 30% think the amount we spend is about right.
That still makes 53% that are essentially clueless on the subject, which should gratify disciples of Barack Obama, Rand Paul, and Pat Buchanan. But the American people are catching on. The percentage who think we should be spending more is up seven points from last month.
38% approve of the job Mr. Obama is doing on national security. 41% rate his performance as "poor."
