Poll: Americans More Confident In Obama, Dems To Seek Bipartisan Solutions Than GOP

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Majorities of Americans believe that President Obama and his fellow Democrats in Congress will sincerely work with the other party, a Gallup poll released Tuesday shows, while decidedly fewer hold similar confidence in Republicans.

According to the poll, 65 percent believe that Obama will make a “sincere effort” to work with the opposing party’s leadership to reach a solution “acceptable to both parties.” Fifty-seven percent believe that Congressional Democrats will make the same bipartisan appeal.

Americans are less certain, however, about the bipartisan capacity of the Congressional GOP. Less than half of respondents, 48 percent, said that Republicans on Capitol Hill will sincerely work with Democratic leaders to strike an agreement that’s palatable to both sides.
