Unless all you watch is Fox or MSNBC, you already know this… but Gallup breaks it down for us:
Americans’ sentiments about bipartisanship in the most recent poll reinforce previous Gallup research showing that the public tilts toward having leaders find ways to compromise in order to get things done, rather than sticking to principles at the risk of doing nothing.
Even partisans appear to want their leaders to work with the other side to pass legislation. Seven out of 10 Democrats say Obama should work to pass legislation with Republicans, even if it is not the legislation that most Democrats want. And more than three-quarters of Republicans say it is extremely or very important that Republican leaders work with Obama and Democratic leaders to pass legislation both parties can agree on.
Another example of both parties not listening to the will of the American people.
