Editor's Comment: Barack Obama would probably give up body parts to have that kind of a popularity rating right about now. Martinelli's strategy is blazingly simple. When faced with any problem or decision, be always opts for whatever best suits the needs of the majority or the most people. Like for example the issue of the union members paying dues part of the controversial law 30. Martinelli underestimated the willingness of the union leaders to literally fall on their swords over the issue, and to send their (ignorant and manipulated) troops into battle in the streets. At its core Martinelli tried to the to best thing for the most people by making the dues payments optional, but in the end he was forced to capitulate on the issue in response to pressure from the union leaders. However, underlying all of that is his true desire to do anything he can to help the little guy. The people are picking up on that - it's genuine so there's no need to fake it - as politicians normally do. And, that is what is being reflected in these polling results.
