Americans want the Republican-led Congress, not Obama, to steer the course of our country.
That’s what a post-election poll found.
Susan Ferrechio reports for the Washington Examiner, Nov. 11, 2014, that a Gallup Poll taken after the Nov. 4 mid-term election that voted a Republican majoirty to both houses of Congress, asked voters ““Who do you want to have more influence over the direction the nation takes in the next year — Barack Obama or the Republicans in Congress?”
The result: The GOP Congress won out over Obama by 17 points, 53% to 36%.
The number represents a nearly historic lead for Republicans. In fact, it’s the biggest lead they’ve had on this Gallup question in decades — even larger than the 9-point advantage the GOP Congress had over President Clinton after the 1994 mid-term election that wiped out the House and Senate Democratic majorities.
In contrast, in 2012, Americans preferred Obama instead of Congress to steer the nation’s course, 46% to 42%.
