If federal Republicans paid much attention to public opinion polls in 2009, they should have unilaterally crawled in a hole and died, U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton told the audience of Monday’s town hall in El Dorado.
But that all changed with the right policy, he said.
“We don’t want to pay attention to polls. If you looked at polls in January 2009 we should have crawled in a hole and died as a party,” he said. “But we got the policy right and 22 months later the American people agreed with our view of the future and not the president’s.”

If you were a member of Congress and could vote either for a bad bill that would at least address a critical need, or no bill at all, which would you choose?
That was the question Tom Cotton faced Jan. 4, only three days after being sworn in as a member of Congress. He voted no.
The bill in question allowed the National Flood Insurance Program to borrow $9.7 billion to cover claims filed by East Coast homeowners affected by Hurricane Sandy.
