Gallup Poll Finds Democrats More Compassionate; Republicans More Psychopathic



Gallup Poll Finds Democrats More Compassionate; Republicans More Psychopathic | Eric Zuesse




Gallup headlined on 28 January 2014, "Democrats and Republicans Differ on Top Priorities," and reported that the biggest difference between supporters of the two Parties concerned "The environment," where 71% of Democrats said it's important to them, versus only 32% of Republicans who did: a whopping difference of 39%, between the two Parties, considered that issue to be important. The second-biggest difference was on "The distribution of income and wealth": 72% of Democrats, versus only 38% of Republicans - a 34% difference. Third came "Poverty and homelessness": 82% of Democrats, versus 53% of Republicans - a 29% difference. Fourth came "Education": 91% of Democrats, versus 70% of Republicans - a 21% difference.
Here were the four issues on the conservative end, the four issues where Republicans scored the largest amount higher (more concerned) than Democrats: First, "The military and national defense": 76% of Republicans, versus 61% of Democrats - a 15% difference - considered that issue to be important. Second, "Taxes": 69% of Republicans, versus 56% of Democrats - a 13% difference. Third, "Terrorism": 77% of Republicans, versus 68% of Democrats - a 9% difference. Fourth, "Government surveillance of U.S. citizens": 45% of Republicans, versus 37% of Democrats - an 8% difference (but if the President had been a Republican, Democrats might have been more concerned about that issue than Republicans would have been).
Clearly, selfish fears swept concerns on the Republican side, whereas concerns for others (and especially the weak) swept concerns on the Democratic side.
One can therefore reasonably infer from this survey that the main difference between Democrats and Republicans is the difference between compassion versus psychopathy.
If these findings are accurate, then one will expect that in political primary elections, where candidates make their appeals to members of their own Party, Democratic candidates will compete with one another mainly on the basis of their proposals for improving things for everyone but especially for the most vulnerable; whereas Republican candidates will compete with one another mainly on the basis of their proposals for improving things for their individual voters. And, in the general election, one will expect that the Democratic nominee will have been chosen on the basis of his concern for everyone, while the Republican nominee will have been chosen on the basis of his concern for Republicans.










As one commentator says, You don’t need no freakin’ polls to come to the same conclusion, all you need is a functioning pair of ears and eyes that can read what they right.

Here's some fascinating reporting from the New York Times on how Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer was pressured at a meeting with state officials by allies of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on the billion dollar real estate development at the center of her allegations about misuse of Sandy relief aid:

The new Democratic meme: if you want a strong military, prevention and punishment of terrorism, lower taxes and wiser spending, and don't like the NSA behaving like the Stasi, you're a psychopath.

The good news is that you've got a pretty good chance of getting disability benefits for being a psychopath.

Gov. Christie goes back on his word, bypasses legislative process to block Telsa sales in NJ




Tesla Motors has been working constructively with the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (NJMVC) and members of Governor Christie’s administration to defend against the New Jersey Coalition of Automotive Retailers’ (NJ CAR) attacks on Tesla’s business model and the rights of New Jersey consumers. Until yesterday, we were under the impression that all parties were working in good faith.


Unfortunately, Monday we received news that Governor Christie’s administration has gone back on its word to delay a proposed anti-Tesla regulation so that the matter could be handled through a fair process in the Legislature. The Administration has decided to go outside the legislative process by expediting a rule proposal that would completely change the law in New Jersey. This new rule, if adopted, would curtail Tesla’s sales operations and jeopardize our existing retail licenses in the state. Having previously issued two dealer licenses to Tesla, this regulation would be a complete reversal to the long standing position of NJMVC on Tesla’s stores. Indeed, the Administration and the NJMVC are thwarting the Legislature and going beyond their authority to implement the state’s laws at the behest of a special interest group looking to protect its monopoly at the expense of New Jersey consumers.


This is an affront to the very concept of a free market.

Very interesting how anti-government radical lives off government largesse - $1300 per month on disability but, somehow, has the time and enough health to travel the country damning the government that pays his relief checks:

according to that it's neck-and-neck = but usually in off year the opposition is way ahead






With the huge increase in ACA signings the numbers in November should be very interesting.

Megyn Kelly Confronts **** Cheney,' You Got It Wrong on Iraq,' Talking Points Memo:

Talking Points Memo | Breaking News and Analysis | TPM

Catherine Thompson – June 19, 2014, 7:48 AM EDT


Fox News host Megyn Kelly confronted former Vice President **** Cheney on Wednesday night about his own foreign policy track record in Iraq, arguing history proves he "got it wrong."


Cheney had co-authored a blistering Wall Street Journal op-ed with his daughter Liz that blasted President Barack Obama for failing to negotiate an agreement to leave a residual force behind in Iraq and accused him of willfully undermining American leadership abroad.

"Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many," they wrote.

"But time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong as well in Iraq, sir," Kelly said. "You said there was no doubt Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. You said the Iraq insurgency was in the last throes, back in 2005. And you said that after our intervention extremists would have to 'rethink their strategy of jihad.'"

"Now with almost a trillion dollars spent there, with 4,500 American lives lost there, what do you say to those who say you were so wrong about so much at the expense of so many?" she asked.

America to Sarah Palin: Enough!



America to Sarah Palin: Enough! – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs



A majority of voters say they've heard enough from Sarah Palin, according to a new national poll.

The NBC/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania survey indicates that 54% of voters say they've heard enough from Palin and would prefer that the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate be less outspoken in political discourse. That includes nearly two-thirds of Democrats, a majority of independents, and nearly four in 10 Republicans.



The poll's release came just a couple of days after Palin made national headlines by calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama.






Americans need to quit picking on Sarah!
