"While framing it as stopping tracking to stir up the public seems to be working so far, most people still want access to the things they use and that is more important to them than government control for our own good."

It's about personal privacy and control of snooping on ones data. The US citizenry seem to be very vocal when their government does it to them. Lots of calls for less interference from government. But it seems many are equally vocal about allowing commercial orgs to slurp up their same private data in the name of freedom from government interference. I'm seeing a smidge of a disconnect here.
