    Which Party Governs Best?

    Put aside ideological issues for a moment, and consider: which party is simply the best at governance when it is in charge? Specifically, which one is more corrupt, and which more competent?

    The system has stagnated and both the Republicans and the Democrats are nothing more than a steaming pile of self-serving ****. Supporting the status quo will not change the status quo.

    Both parties are about the same. Very little difference in my mind.

    Could not answer poll. As for governing best, the only choices listed were Republicans and Democrats, otherwise known as Republicrats.

    Freudian slip?

    In the terms of your poll, I don't think "competence" or corruption are partisan. I think democrats more closely match my beliefs, but that does not make them more competent.

    If I had to go by the past 15-20 years, I couldn't say that either party, collectively speaking, knows their ass from a hole in the ground, and that both are riddled with self-serving corruption.

    On the whole, I favor gridlock.
