Poll: Rethuglicans More Extreme

For those in the Beltway media that push the "both sides are to blame" argument in politics, a new Pew Research poll shows that the American public knows the situation better:  54 percent believe the Republicans are more extreme (vs. 35 percent saying Democrats), and 52 percent believe the Democrats are more willing to compromise (vs. 27 percent saying Republicans).

That won't change the Beltway media's narrative, however.  Their careers depend on access to politicians in both parties, not calling it like it is.  Wouldn't want to offend any extreme obstructionists, would they?
