This is a modest decline, but perhaps smaller than might have been expected given that ACORN doesn't exist anymore.

I'd call this a dry British sense of humor if PPP were British. In other news, they found that 39 percent of Americans claim to have an opinion about the Simpson-Bowles deficit plan, while 25 percent claim to have an opinion about the Panetta-Burns plan, which they just made up. Fun times.
