The polling firm Rasmussen is out with arelatively shocking poll given the results of yesterday's election. Here's the gist:
Hold the celebration. Most voters expected Republicans to win control of the House of Representatives on Election Day, but nearly as many expect to be disappointed with how they perform by the time the 2012 elections roll around.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds, in fact, that 59% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is at least somewhat likely that most voters will be disappointed with Republicans in Congress before the next national elections. That includes 38% who say it is Very Likely.
So are you with "THE people"? Do you think they will disappoint?

I think the obvious answer would be that it is likely. Even when the two parties do work together, we end up with crap like No Child Left Behind.

Seeing as this is not my first political rodeo and I have been around the block more times than even I care to remember, I can unequivocally say that the vast majority will be just as disappointed with this crop, as the last. None of these people are magicians and a whole group of cooks is always more likely to screw up the broth...everybody knows that. Balance is good for THEM; blame is more easy to shift. I see gridlock. How does gridlock create jobs-the biggest problem with the economy? At least if people had jobs they COULD stimulate the economy, make their house payment, meet their own needs, instead of shifting their needs to an already broken and overburdened government. Jobs takes precedent over the deficit, IMO.
