    Default Survey: GOPers less likely to ask sexual offenders in party to quit than Dems

    http://time.com/time-person-of-the-y...ence-breakers/

    Interesting statistic in the new TIME magazine cover story with the Person of the Year Award. According to a TIME/Survey Monkey poll when the accused offender was in their party only 54% of Republicans would demand a resignation as compared to 74% of Democrats if the offender was in theirs. A 20 percent gap - that's no small difference.

    Why the huge difference? Maybe the acceptance of Trump had a lot to do with that, but it's hard to say.

    For the those looking for the relevant text in the story, here it is:

    That political divide was revealed in the TIME/SurveyMonkey poll, which found that Republicans were significantly more likely to excuse sexual misdeeds in their own party. The survey found that while a majority of Republicans and Democrats agree that a Democratic Congressman accused of sexual harassment should resign (71% and 74% respectively), when the accused offender was in the GOP, only 54% of Republicans would demand a resignation (compared to 82% of Democrats).

    Why does it amaze you that someone should disagree with a poll? Do you live in a world where everyone agrees?

    You may think this is over dramatic but, I honestly worry about my country when sexual assault of women is part of a calculation in the polling booth and not an automatic no.
    Are you who you were 40 years ago? That has to be a factor. It would be easier in the case of a Franken, were incidents are more proven and much much more recent and where, upon exiting, a liberal Democrat can expected to be appointed.
    In fact, in order to claim the moral pomposity, I mean superiority, the Democrats are going to see to it that Franken is through.
    I expect Bill Clinton to be come non grata among Dems, too.

    I'm sure prisons are full of murders, rapists and child molesters that use a similar argument at their parole hearings.

    Eh, our discussion is moot anyway. The voters of Alabama will decide. And if Moore wins, the Republican Party will decide what his role will be in their caucus.
    All together now!

    I cannot disagree really although the "worst" might be a little harsh. When i think worse i think about the mass killers and such. I would say the worst the republican party has to offer though.
