Hillary Clinton last week urged Democrats not to be civil with Republicans over political issues, prompting rare disagreement from former First Lady Michelle Obama. Voters also disagree with Clinton but, unlike her, dont expect things to improve even if Democrats return to power in Congress.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds that a plurality (47%) disagrees with Clintons statement: You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. Thirty-nine percent (39%) agree with the statement, while 14% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Even among Democrats, its a close call: 44% agree with Clinton; 40% do not. Fifty-one percent (51%) of Republicans disagree, as do voters not affiliated with either major party by a 49% to 35% margin.
Its important to note that Rasmussen Reports question did not identify Clinton as the source of the quotation.
Sixty-six percent (66%) think there is less civility between the two major political parties in Congress these days. Just 18% say there is more civility. Thirteen percent (13%) rate the level of civility as about the same.
Clinton went on to say in the same interview that civility can begin again when Democrats regain control of Congress. But just 26% of voters believe there will be more civility between the two parties if Democrats win control of at least one chamber of Congress in the upcoming elections. Forty-one percent (41%) think there will be less civility in the next session of Congress if that is the case. Twenty-eight percent (28%) expect the level of civility to be about the same.
Is she a fictional person portrayed by a stable of body doubles?
Is she some kind of bizarre alien colony animal composed of chameleon worms crammed into a pantsuit exoskeleton? Sort of like the Hunters in Halo?
I mean really, what the hell?
Obamas blood in the streets loretta lynch was just the beginning. Very Hitler.
I think it may work here too. Look how far we have come. Just promise someone a monthly check and the will allow you to crush unborn babies skulls. No limit.
