Dear GOP,

We're on to you.

Sincerely,

America

A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows that "by nearly a 3-to-1 margin, respondents conclude that the Republican Party is emphasizing partisanship more than unity."

That should have been called the Stating the Obvious Poll, but that doesn't sound Serious and Official enough.

So Americans think Republicans are partisan... what was their first clue? Their Inauguration night plot to obstruct?

These?

Their motto?

blame obama

Their refusal to compromise? Their refusal to acknowledge what poll after poll tells them? Their refusal do anything but whine and filibuster?

All of the above?

First Read:

...64 percent say the Republican Party is taking a partisan approach, versus 22 percent who say it's focused on unity.

And a new Pew Research survey came out. Taegan summed it up for us:

62% of Americans says the Republican party is out of touch with the American people, 56% think it is not open to change and 52% say the party is too extreme.

To recap, they are a partisan, divisive, obstructionist, out of touch, stubborn, stuck in the mud group that caters to extremists. Republicans, you sound like a real attractive party:
