Yes Carol, the polls are showing who the American people are blaming for the shutdown . The latest NBC News/ Wall Street journal poll shows;<quoted text>
Obama and Reid have no other goal than to spite Republicans.
The problem with spite is that it usually comes back to bite you on the butt instead. The polls are beginning to show it.
--Only 24% of Americans had a favorable view of Republicans, the lowest figure in the poll’s multi-year history and four percentage points lower than last month. Another low: only 21% had a favorable view of the tea party.
--President Obama’s standing was relatively stable, the pollsters said, moving from 45% favorable last month to 47% now, within the poll’s margin of error of 3.5 points. Democrats overall were at 39% positive, with congressional Democrats at 36%.
--70% of Americans said Republicans were putting politics ahead of what was best for the country. A lesser 51% said that about Obama.
The extreme right wing is taking its toll on the once proud GOP.
So who's getting bitten in the butt Carol?
