What are Americans thinking and saying about the two major political parties in the US?
49% say the GOP is the party with "strong leaders." Yes, strong like Genghis Khan was strong. Strong like Mussolini. Strong like Macchiavelli. Only 35% said the same of the Democrats (Howie calls them the Demoncrats -- isn't that clever?).
But 49% think that the Democratic party is "The party of the future -- that is, the most forward-looking in their policies." Only 39% said that of the GOP. 56% say that the Democrats are "the party of change," while only 29% said that of the GOP.
And "the party of extremism?" By a 5 point margin, 45%-40%, it's the GOP.
