THE BELTWAY IS NOT THE BASE:

Why Jeb Bush May Survive Common Core Criticism (JANET HOOK, 2/19/15, WSJ)

[A]ccording to new NBC News/Marist polls conducted in three states that will be among the first to hold presidential primaries and caucuses.

The survey, asking about a variety of issues that could affect voters' presidential choice, found that in Iowa -- host of the first presidential caucuses in 2016 -- a solid majority of the potential GOP electorate said that a candidate who supported Common Core would be either totally or mostly acceptable to them.

That is somewhat surprising because among conservative activists, few issues rile up a crowd faster than Common Core, the education standards that most states have adopted to improve student achievement.

as with immigration, it gets the activists in DC worked up, not Americans.
