Pennsylvania tightening, according to Q poll A myriad of pollsters have confirmed that the debt ceiling negotiations in Washington have exacted a political toll on the president. President Obama’s numbers took a precipitous dip in Gallup tracking, though they have rebounded a bit . In trial heats, however, that drop has been less pronounced.

For the last Idon’tknowhowlong, Republicans and Democrats have been locked in partisan warfare that has gone on for longer than the 100 Years War, the Arab-Israeli conflict, or what it feels like to sit through one episode of “The Real Housewives of NYC.” The Republicans like to refer to themselves as “traditional.” That means, they are anti-progress. The Democrats like to refer to themselves as “progressives.” That means, not liberals. Republicans want to fight about social issues, such as gay rights.
