Change Is Just Another Word

This new poll from WaPo/ABC News just disturbs me on so many levels.
Overall, a slim majority of all voters say they would prefer Republican control of Congress so that the legislative branch would act as a check on the president's policies. Those most likely to vote in the midterms prefer the GOP over continued Democratic rule by a sizable margin of 56 percent to 41 percent.

Wait. Don't we already have a pretty damn good "check on the president's policies" when he can barely get anything passed without watering it down for Republican taste, and then they typically vote no anyway?

The absurdity of the voter mentality has me ready to throw in the bloody towel and give up.
