Look at the third and fifth statement. They are the exact opposite of each other, yet 63 percent favor the third and 56 percent favor the fifth.

How is this possible?

This explains a lot, I think.

    Speculation: people who answered “better” to both questions think that we need more steadfast people holding to their principles on “their side”, and more people willing to compromise on “the other side.” We’re too wishy-washy, our opponents are too intransigent.

    No no!
    It makes perfect sense. You aren’t considering the status quo. Right now, we have people in office who do NOT get things done so that they can receive a kickback from lobbyists. People who had either principles OR the ability to compromise would be a step up.

    Becca is right, I was thinking the same thing!
