UTICA, N.Y., Oct. 21 (UPI) -- Voters see Republicans as unlikely to compromise with the Obama administration if they reclaim either the U.S. House or Senate, a Zogby Poll indicated.

The Zogby Interactive survey, released Thursday, also indicated a split among voters on whether it would be better to have gridlock or have Democratic control of Congress and the presidency.

The poll also indicated 53 percent of likely voters said they were willing to reverse Obama administration policies and 54 percent said they believe Republican majorities will propose new solutions.

Pollster John Zogby said the data represented a "very troubled outlook for successful governance after the election" because of polarization.

"Half of the voters see gridlock as preferable to allowing Obama and the Democrats more time to see their policies carried through," Zogby said. "Given the strong opinions of independents on these questions, there appears to be very little middle ground for any politicians who might seek it."

The poll of 1,963 likely voters was conducted Oct. 12-14. The margin of error is 2.2 percentage points.
