Has Obama Changed Washington?

More and more of the public thinks Washington is reverting to its partisan self.


Reports Gallup: "Since April, there has been a significant increase in the percentage of Americans who say the tone and level of civility between Republicans and Democrats in Washington have gotten worse since Barack Obama was elected president, from 24% to 35%. The plurality of Americans continue to perceive no change in this regard, but that is down from 52% to 42%. About one in five say things have improved in this area, a percentage that has been stable since Obama took office." Has Obama changed Washington? Or is the recent spike in partisanship a sign that change is on its way? Post your thoughts.
