Gallup Results Present Problems For Both Agendas

Gallup has released some interesting poll findings showing that both sides of the aisle have their work cut out for them if they’re going to keep Americans happy.

Released Thursday, the Gallup: results show: that only 37% of Americans favor a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, while 62% want to see measure that will halt illegal immigration.

And, 70% want the tax code simplified to lower rates and an elimination of deductions and loopholes, while less than half (47%) support Pres. Obama’s proposal to increase taxes on those households with incomes of $250,000 or more.

Not good news for liberal politicians seeking to open borders and raise revenue.

But, conservatives have challenges, too. Fully 88 percent of Gallup respondents support saving the: biggest entitlement programs, while 72 percent says there needs to be spending cuts.

As the fiscal cliff looms, while sequestration means massive cuts to the nation’s military, only 29 percent favor this.

So,: it seems that Democrats don’t have: popular support to pursue their push to raise taxes, and Republicans don’t seem to be pushed by Americans to support legislation that calls for amnesty. : The alternative Dream Act from Sen. Marco Rubio, which already splits the conference, is a prime example.

Lastly, Americans want to see a simpler tax code and spending cuts, but don’t want government messing around with their Medicare.

Let the political maneuvering, on both sides, begin!
