  • The one word that must be added to Republicans' wristband (Charlotte Observer) Another Civitas poll last month found that independent N.C. voters blame both parties equally for the loss of the country's AAA credit rating. They view House Speaker John Boehner and Senate leader Harry Reid equally poorly, and rate President Obama higher than either. Civitas, one of the seasoned leaders in the statewide conservative movement, is wise to conduct a study that shows conservatives may return the reins of political power back to liberal Democrats if they don't form a political coalition with independent voters.
