What percentage of Americans think President Obama is trying to bridge the partisan divide? Republicans are doing the same? Plus, polls show that President Obama is a "personal hero" to many Americans.
 

74% of Americans said President Obama is trying to bridge the partisan divide by compromising with Republicans. Only 31% said Republicans are doing the same. 63% said Republicans in Congress opposed the stimulus bill “for political reasons,” not real issues of policy.
