Would divided government mean gridlock?

Hosted by and

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?
