WSJ Poll gives Powell an “F”

Surprisingly, the typically conservative WSJ readers overwhelmingly gave the deregulator turned crusading moralist an "F." 39% of the over 1000 voters gave the Chairman a failing grade –twice as many who gave him an "A."   (My own vote is visible at bottom of graphic).
