“Will the GOP-controlled Congress be more productive than the Democrat-controlled one?” Nearly 71 percent of respondents answered “No,” with only 29 percent expressing confidence in the new Congressional group. Overall response: Breakdown and more details at link. Interesting to see the differences between urban and rural. Bottom line is that the Rs said they would work against this president and that's what their history has been. Why would we think they would suddenly change? Additionally, every time Obama has tried to work with congress, the Rs have shout him down. Why would we think that will change?
