Poll: Americans say GOP “unwilling to compromise”
A new Gallup poll finds that the biggest critique of Republicans by Americans is that they're "too inflexible" and "unwilling to compromise," while for Democrats it's that they "spend too much" and "increase the budget deficit."
According to the poll, which measured what Americans dislike about each party, 21 percent of national adults said Republicans don't compromise, including 26 percent of Republicans, 17 percent of independents and 22 percent of Democrats. The second most common criticism was that Republicans are for "protecting the wealthy, not the middle class."
For Democrats, 14 percent said they spend too much, including 23 percent of Republicans, 11 percent of independents and 10 percent of Democrats. The second biggest criticism was that Democrats were also "unwilling to compromise."
