CNN poll: Republicans would get blame for shutdown

Sadly, public opinion accounts for a lot, sometimes more than the facts of an issue or the democratic process. Fully informed voters wouldn't be nearly so upset about the new health care law if not for the hysterical, heavily financed campaign run against it for three years or more. Nonetheless, from CNN:

More people say Republicans in Congress rather than President Barack Obama would be responsible if the federal government shuts down starting Tuesday because of a bitter partisan battle over the new health care law, according to a new CNN/ORC International poll.

With just hours before funding for the federal government runs out at 12:01 a.m. ET Tuesday, the poll showed that most Americans also think congressional Republicans are acting like "spoiled children" in this fiscal fight, with the public divided on whether the president is acting like a spoiled child or a responsible adult.

The poll was conducted for CNN by ORC International September 27-29, with 803 adults nationwide questioned by telephone. The survey's overall sampling error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
