Top Criticism Of GOP: Inflexibility

04.01.13 10:56 AM

PRINCETON, N.J., (UPI) — An unwillingness to compromise is the chief complaint Americans have against the Republican Party, results of a Gallup poll released Monday indicated.

When asked to say what they most dislike about the Republican Party, the party’s inflexibility was the leading objection voiced by 26 percent of Republicans, 17 percent of independents and 22 percent of Democrats.

Among Republicans, 14 percent said the GOP gives in too easily or doesn’t stand up for its positions, results indicated.

The top criticism of Republicans leveled by 20 percent of Democrats is what they characterize as the GOP’s focus on the rich or protecting the wealthy at the expense of the middle class.

Gallup said 51 percent of Democrats either said there wasn’t anything they dislike about the party or who offered no opinion. Thirty-three percent of Republicans said they same of their party.

The most common complaints among Democrats is that their party supports spending too much/increasing the deficit, 10 percent; poor leadership, 6 percent; and putting too much emphasis on government entitlements, also 6 percent, the Princeton, N.J., polling agency said.

Republicans’ chief criticism of Democrats is government spending, mentioned by 23 percent, results indicated.

Results are based on nationwide phone interviews with 1,020 adults as part of Gallup Daily tracking March 20-21. The margin of error is 4 percentage points.
