    Default Poll: More want Obama to stick to policies than to be bipartistian

    The Plum LineGreg Sargent's blog
    Poll: More Want Obama To Stick To His Policies Than To Be Bipartisan

    Iíve noted before that the polling by the national news orgs on whether voters want bipartisanship is woefully inadequate. The questioning hasnít explained clearly that if Dems were to reach a bipartisan compromise with Republicans, it would have actual policy consequences, meaning the resulting legislation wouldnít be the same.

    Now the non-partisan Research 2000 has done a national poll that asks a well-crafted question: It finds that by a significant margin, more want Obama to stick to his original policies than to be bipartisan. Thatís also true for independents.

    The numbers were sent over by the liberal groups that commissioned it, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee and Democracy for America. The poll asked:

    Which do you think should be a higher priority for Barack Obama right now ó working in a bipartisan way with Republicans in Congress or sticking to the policies he promised he would during the campaign?

    Among voters overall, 49% want Obama to stick to his policies, versus only 33% who want him to be bipartisan. Eighteen percent arenít sure.

    Among independents, 45% want Obama to stick to his policies, versus only 30% who want him to be bipartisan. Twenty five percent arenít sure.

    These results mirror another recent poll, which found that a majority want a Dem-only health care bill with a public option more than one with bipartisan support. The conclusion seems clear: When questions about bipartisanship are put in a policy context, people care more about the actual policy contents of legislation than whether it has the bipartisan seal of approval.

    Can't disagree with the poll. Spending all of that time on bipartisanship with Republicans was just a waste of time, since they've declared themselves the party of no. Obama should focus on reining the Democrats in, especially the Blue Dogs.

    Geez, ya think? Only the media and Republicans want bipartisanship, which in DC means doing whatever the Republicans want.

    Exactly. Did we really need a poll to tell us that people want Obama to stick to the policies he campaigned on?

    Yes, and he should also tell Holy Joe Lieberman to get with the program or STFU.

    Holy Joe is doing exactly what Obama wanted. Please face the fact that Obama had no intention of ever pushing for any kind of real health reform. Feingold pretty much said so today.
