Politico: On jobs bill, White House bets on Boehner’s support

by Lisa Mathias

While the country is desperate for more jobs, President Obama and House Speaker John Boehnerc can both afford to gain each other’s support, write Carrie Brown and Jake Sherman of Politico. They turned to David Winston for insight, who said that Republicans have a slight advantage:

He pointed to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll that found voters prefer a Republican-controlled Congress by the widest margin, 6 points, in more than a year.

“The House is going to take the proposals the White House put forward, look through them and try to find out where there can be clear common ground, and once that emerges, then we’ll see what the White House’s reaction is to that,” Winston said.
