We Are Sick Of The Partisanship!Posted: 10 October 2012
Or are we? For the last 4 years we have been told by the MSM that we Americans are sick of the extreme partisanship in Washington….we are told that we just want our reps to just get along and find solutions to the problems we face as a country. Have you heard this also?
We Americans are sick and tired of all this division…right?
But it seems that all that “critical” analysis by the MSM may be nothing more than CRAP!
Thinking about the major problems facing this country today do you think Washington is more likely to make progress on them after the 2012 election if one party controls the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives, or if control of the White House, the Senate, and the House and Representatives is divided between the parties?
One party controls – 60%
Control divided – 25%
DK/NA – 15%
It is a widespread opinion, with a large majority of Republicans, Democrats and Independents all thinking one-party control would be more effective.
Not only do voters think one-party control would result in more efficient government, but Gallup also recently found that a large plurality of Americans want one party to win full control this election.
We could always say that these polls are skewed in some way…..of course, they will….but there is more…..
Fifty-two percent of registered voters surveyed believe it would be better if the presidency, the Senate and House were controlled by the same party, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Tuesday. Thirty-nine percent still favor divided government.
The poll’s findings mark the first time since 1986 that a majority of voters has favored one-party control, as well as a significant shift since the same survey taken in 2010.
That year, 29 percent of voters preferred one-party control and a strong majority of 62 percent favored divided government, marking a 23-point swing over the last two years.
There looks to be a trend beginning……..the thought that the only way to get anything done is to have one party in total control….kinda flies in the face of what the Founders had envisioned……wouldn’t you say?
Please share your thoughts with me……
