That question is increasingly being answered in the affirmative by all groups of people all over the nation, with the singular exception of highly partisan Democrats who only want Bush to fail, and damn the consequences, and those already receiving SS benefits, whose checks wouldn't be affected by the changes.
That's the only conclusion you can draw from posts today from Will Franklin who collects and analyzes recent polling data on the topic, and from John Hinderaker at Power Line who reports on a Zogby poll.
Meanwhile, the ball keeps moving forward. Bush's steady but unspectacular drive toward reform is reminiscent of a Woody Hayes "three yards and a cloud of dust" move the chains ball control offense. The Dems will need to put something forward themselves, to change the momentum, or reform (I believe) will eventually happen.
UPDATE: (Hat tip: Michelle Malkin) The Washington Post editors notice proposed indexing changes in the Social Security reform package and find them a good thing. Bush plunges ahead off tackle for three more yards, first down and 10.
