Yet another poll released Thursday shows more Americans blame Republicans for the current US Government shutdown than they do President Obama or the Democrats.
Yet, in the alternative Tea Party reality, they couldn’t be happier about the way things are turning out.
On day three of the partial government shutdown, a new CBS News poll reveals that a large majority of Americans disapprove of the shutdown and more are blaming Republicans than President Obama and the Democrats for it.
Fully 72 percent of Americans disapprove of shutting down the federal government over differences on the Affordable Care Act; just 25 percent approve of this action.
Republicans are divided: 48 percent approve, while 49 percent disapprove.
