Abstract:

A March 2008 survey sponsored by the Hoover Institution and the Economist magazine showed that seven in ten Americans want party leaders who will “come together and compromise,” yet it also found that partisan voters were quick to ascribe positive attributes to themselves and negative attributes to their opposing party. What many partisans want is not compromise itself but compromise on their terms.
