What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls

“One of the strangest aspects of Election 2012 is that voters are demanding change but didn’t change politicians. They left Republicans in charge of the House, elected an even more Democratic Senate and re-elected President Obama. They’re unhappy with the status quo in the country but left the political status quo in place.” That’s how Scott Rasmussen described the results in his weekly newspaper column.  He added that “voters basically threw the same kids back in the room and told them to clean up the mess they’ve created.”

Now that the election is over, most voters (55%) want the Republicans in Congress to work with the president. However, eight-out-of-ten Republicans disagree and want their representatives to stand for what they believe in rather than compromise. The president is not the only one likely to have trouble with GOP voters. Most Republicans think their representatives in Washington are out of touch with the party’s base.
