Hey, Fellas, How ’Bout Some Teamwork?

Voters can’t make it much clearer, but apparently President Obama and Congress still don’t get the message.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 79% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is more important for Congress and the president to work together to achieve what’s best for the country rather than to stand for what they believe in. Just 16% disagree and feel that standing for what they believe is the priority. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
