Well, there’s good news on corruption – sort of. The folks over at the Civitas Institute have taken a statewide poll and asked voters which party is more corrupt – Democrats or Republicans.

So, who wins?

Well, when it comes to corruption right here in North Carolina:

25% say Republicans are more corrupt (which puzzling because Republicans haven’t had the power to be corrupt in years).

And 22% say Democrats.

Now the good news: 37% say both.

And what about Washington?

21% said Democrats in Washington are more corrupt (they must remember Clinton selling sleepovers in the Lincoln bedroom).

And 27% said Republicans.

More good news: 40% said both.

So, we’ve got 84% of the voters saying ‘someone’ is corrupt in Raleigh? And, even more, 88% saying ‘someone’ is corrupt in Washington. And there’s an election in ten months.

    And the published results of this survey should remove any and all doubt as to the objectivity of the Civitas Institute. Would that others meet this standard.
