“Record Preference for One-Party Rule.” This is a Gallup poll. No. No, folks! (chuckling) You haven’t heard anything yet. Get this. This is quite disturbing. You know, what have we been told the past…? Well, all of my life, but let’s focus on the last eight years. I take it back.
No, let’s add Obama’s 3-1/2 years. What have we been told the last 12 years? Bipartisanship! We’ve been told that the American people want cooperation. We’ve been told the American people want people in the different parties to work together. We’ve been told that we need people who will cross the aisle and work with the other side to get things done for the people of this country. Have we not? We have been drowning in this.
We’ve been hit every which way possible with the notion that “bipartisanship” and “cooperation,” that’s what people want. Until today. From Gallup: A record number of people now claim they prefer to be “ruled” by one party. Question: “Do you think it’s better for the country to have a president who comes from the same political party that controls Congress, does it make no difference either way, or do you think it’s better to have a president from one party and a Congress controlled by the other?”
Thirty-eight percent “same party;” 33% “no difference;” 23% “different parties.”
