It took them what? Almost 2 years to actually come up with something? Meanwhile Americans wisely are still not buying what they're selling and Democrats are closing ground...
Poll: GOP Pledge To America A Bust Among Tiny Minority Who've Heard Of It
Quote :
According to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll, the Pledge to America was a net negative for the GOP -- though most people asked about it have no idea what it is.
Of 1002 adults surveyed, only 34 percent had heard that Republicans
in Washington had signed something called the Pledge to America. Of
those 34 percent who knew about it, most didn't care at all. But only 23
percent of that subset said the Pledge would make them more likely to
vote Republican in the November midterms. By contrast, 29 percent said
the Pledge would make them less likely to vote GOP this fall.

That compares unfavorably to an October 1994 poll Pew
conducted when Republicans introduced the Contract with America. Back
then fewer people had heard of the Contract in the first place (29-71)
and most who had heard of it weren't swayed in either direction. But of
those who were, slightly more said they were likelier to vote Republican
as a result of the Contract than said they were less likely.

Still avoiding any actual discussion here and in other topics. Typical, Robin.

You could perhaps tell us why you disagree with the video... at least pretend you're not here for the usual trolling.

Here's how Rasmussen was trying to spin the "pledge"a little over a week ago...Voters See Republicans Pledge As Campaign Gimmick, But Half Say They Might Do What They’ve Promised

I heard the GOP Pledge To America loud and clear. They pledged to assault the minimum wage, and I've never been more energized to vote in my life.
