Danger for GOP? More Want One-Party Control

It's been widely overlooked, but there's a new Gallup Poll with possibly wide significance. Polls in the past have always shown a perhaps understandable but sometimes maddening preference among voters for split control in Washington--in other words, they seem to prefer gridlock, with the White House checking Congress and vice versa. But now Gallup has just found an astonishing surge in those who say right now they want one-party control. Since Obama is doing well at Gallup right now--maintaining a 6% lead today--this would suggest that many folks may also vote for Dems for Congress in an effort to give him something to work with.

The numbers: 38% now want one-party control vs. 23% who prefer a split, and 33% don't really care. Gallup notes: "As the 2012 election approaches, these findings suggest that Americans may be somewhat less open to ballot splitting than in prior years."

3. Put them to a test.

Give the dems a viable majority & see what they do with it. Americans are sick of watching their standard of living decline while Congress bickers. Problem is, so many of our dems are not really dems.

But I'm all for giving them the majority & see what they do with it. ~crosses fingers.
