2014 Political Polarization Survey
Q26F1/F2: Thinking about how Barack Obama and Republican leaders should address the most important issues facing the country. Imagine a scale from zero to 100 where 100 means Republican leaders get everything they want and Obama gets nothing he wants, and zero means Obama gets everything and Republican leaders get nothing. Where on this scale from zero to 100 do you think they should end up? [FOR HALF OF SAMPLE OBAMA AND REPUBLICANS ARE REVERSED]
