    None of the above. I want the best candidate to win.

    Ideally?

    Prez: Repub

    House: about 50/50, or maybe Dem by a very narrow majority.

    That should keep them out of too much mischief...
    This is the best idea yet. Of course the Dems may prefer:

    Prez: Dem
    Senate: Dem 52 Rep 48 (same options except opposite)
    House: equal

    Either way, it would be interesting to see how they would be more inclined to be less partisan and more willing to work for the will of the people
    We may not agree on everything but I bet we could find some common ground.

    Re: Who do you want to "win"?

    This poll also depends on what the different party's have in the House and Senate. If there are more radicals of either side, nothing will get done. If there are too many moderates, things might work out fine if either party had a majority. Seeing as the parameters I gave are quite vague...I guess it might be best to just have the most competent people in office, regardless of party affiliations. Smart people know what needs to get done, which is probably why there is such a gridlock in Congress; they are all incompetent.

    Do you think America is better with having equal representation of all major political factions or would the country benefit more from a single party rule?



    IMHO, we need equal representation. Within in the past 10 years we have had 4 years of Majority Republican and 4 years of Majority Democrat. Both failed miserably to make any substantial changes to the countries failings that have led us to where we are today.


    P.S. Ignore my typos in the poll.

    I would want all conservatives or a majority of conservatives to win, I could care less what letter they have next to their name. A majority of just republicans,just libertarians or just democrats does no good if they contradict your views. For example would any self respecting conservative be happy that a progressive republican one?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I would be happy with a form of fiscal conservative and social liberal. I don't agree with many of the Democrats on size of government or spending habits and I don't agree with Conservatives with meddling in individuals personal affairs.

    I don't want anyone to "win"... and, IMO, folks being focused on having your side "win" is precisely what's wrong with this country. I want what's "best"... whatever that may be.

    Re: Who do you want to "win"?

    I'm going with a combination of Gosh and CC.

    I don't want Libertarians to win a majority, they'll do things way to quick and forever curse being a libertarian.
    I'd rather have complete grid lock, the less any of them can do the better I am.

    Re: Who do you want to "win"?

    Both parties are full of corporate whores and the minority parties have no real chance of winning, so either way, it doesn't matter.

    Too bad we can't have a majority of people like Alan Grayson in the senate and house right now.
