Americans Favor Compromise to Get Things Done in Washington
No, they don't. Americans don't favor compromise in any way shape or form in anything they do.
They might say they do in the opinion polls but at the election polls, they vote against it every time.
Since this hyperpartisan thing is so new, the gerrymandering problem must be new too...right? Never woulda been any need for it before 1960. Because the parties always worked together to solve the problems of America before that.
