I showed up at a rally back in April. (in 'Libral' L.A.) At it's core, that particular rally was anti-Obama. The majority of the people there were frustrated about the outcome of the election and were all worked up by hyper-partisan talking points about Marxism and Socialism. I didn't meet one person who could talk specifics about TARP, the AIG Bailout, the Stimulus Package. There was a general confusion/misunderstanding about how those policies came about, their purpose, and how they were carried out. Granted, I only spoke with a handful of people, but the ones I met believed that the policies were marxist/socialist and this was all because of Obama.
