GOP Way Out in Right Field with Wrong Policies

A new Pew Survey released today shows that on some issues, support for the Dem position and opposition to the GOP position is very, very lop-sided.  You don’t usually see numbers like these.

For example, 76% want to deal with the deficit by both raising taxes and cutting spending.  Only 19% agree with the GOP policy of no tax increases.

On President Obama’s proposal to raise the minimum wage to $9.00 an hour, 71% agree, with only 26% opposed.

On passing major gun control legislation, 67% agree and 29% oppose.

On toughening emission standards for power plants, 62% agree and 28% oppose.

These numbers aren’t just terrible for the GOP, they’re not healthy for our two-party system.
