KEYWORDS:
Those poll numbers suck for the Democrats, they need a wide margin to win. GOP keeps passing bills to open Gov't, and the 'Party of No' keeps rejecting them. This is definately win-able now

I think this polling mirrors congress' overall ratings, and the one that says "blame them both" is actually higher than Obamba's favorables..

LET IT BURN seems to be the winner in this poll.

Blaming Bush no longer operable. The Kenyan is toast.

The WWII Memorial showdown and Reid’s callousness toward children with cancer aren’t winning the Rats any style points.

Now that’s a more believable poll, or less of a flat out lie than usual. I’ll take it and like it. Obama has jumped the shark and missed before this collapse ends.

Very interesting. The consensus seems to be “a pox on both your houses”. I’ll take it.

I called my Rep today and thanked him for having a spine. I told him that anything he did to stop earscare was worth it. In addition the EPA and IRS reduction should be permanent.

That’s probably why he suddenly invited McConnell and Boehner over after being so aloof up until now.

This isn’t going the way the Dems. thought it would at all. The media is dutifully blaming the Reps. but then Reid made that callous remark about a child with cancer, and Obama was stupid enough to close down always open monuments and suddenly the voters see these people for the petulant children they are.

If boner and his buddies think caving will help their poll numbers they will cave. And who knows? Maybe they’ll get some liberals to vote for them. /s

The bottom line is that Obamacare isn’t that popular, and while people don’t really want the government shut down, they don’t see Obamacare as a great cause worth defending. So activists will determine the outcome of the debate.

Obama is not running again. This poll is a good poll.

I think even some of the Republicans who wanted to cave knew that Obama and Reid would unleash some gaffes and truths.

Interesting. Perhaps folks are actually seeing through the 99% favorable media coverage Barry gets.
