Americans and One-Party Government

I think many Americans feel conflicted. On one hand, they don’t trust either party enough to hand them control over government. On the other hand, they’re getting really sick of deadlock.

It looks to me that disgust over gridlock is trumping doubts about the parties. As a recent Gallup survey showed, Americans’ are shifting toward one-party government. For the first time Americans are saying that the country is better off with a president and Congress of the same party. Elected officials could take note of the public’s disdain. Or, they could focus on trying to score partisan points and blindly adhering to the party platforms drafting by special interests and extremists.
