Top Critique of GOP: ‘Unwilling to Compromise’

As Republican leaders openly scrutinize their party after a 2012 election that was disappointing for them, rank-and-file Republicans, independents, and Democrats voice the same primary criticism of the GOP: it is “too inflexible” or “unwilling to compromise.” …

Democratic President Barack Obama’s victory in November largely ratified the Democratic Party’s brand and approach to reaching out to voters, and that seems to be reflected in the high proportion of Democrats — 51% — who say there isn’t anything they dislike about their party or who offer no opinion. This contrasts with 33% of Republicans who can’t think of anything to criticize in their own party. [cont.]
