Would divided government mean gridlock?

Hosted by ,

GOP candidates point with alarm at Hillary Clinton’s Supreme Court nominees, free college tuition and “Big Government” that’s bigger than ever. Advocates for Republicans are almost saying it out loud: Hillary Clinton is likely to be America’s next President. That’s got them campaigning to maintain a divided government. Are they selling government by checks and balances in hopes of gridlock and four years of a Democratic president who can’t get anything done? Is that what voters really want?
