Poll: 70 percent of Americans Disapprove of Republican Approach to Budget Negotiations

Seventy percent of Americans disapprove of the way Republican lawmakers are approaching budget negotiations as the federal government shutdown enters its second week, a seven point jump from last week, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll published Monday.

President Barack Obama fared marginally better, with 51 percent of respondents disapproving of his handling of budget negotiations. Congressional Democrats, however, carried a 61 percent disapproval rating, according to the poll.

A Pew poll also released Monday bolstered this perception somewhat. According to that survey, 38 percent of Americans blamed the shutdown on congressional Republicans and 30 percent blamed it on the Obama administration.

The Post-ABC poll, conducted Oct. 2 - 6, surveyed 1,005 adults on conventional and cellular phones with a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. The Pew poll, conducted Oct 3-6, surveyed 1,000 adults on conventional and cellular phones with a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points.

It's about time that the politicians in Washington stand up and pay attention to the latest polls, which are all saying the same thing: we are tired of the radical Republicans efforts to destroy America and we aren't voting for you in 2014.

Wake up and smell the voters - all the polls agree, for once.
