PEW poll showing Repugnants will be blamed, mostly, if we go over 'Fical Cliff'

According to this poll John Boehner's obscene attempts to put the blame for this impasse on the PResident don't seem to be having the hoped-for effect.

(emphasis my own)
The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press and The Washington Post, conducted Nov. 28-Dec. 2 among 1,003 adults, finds continued pessimism over prospects for a deficit agreement.

Four-in-ten (40%) expect that the president and congressional Republicans will reach a deal by Jan. 1 to prevent automatic tax increases and spending cuts from taking effect; 49% say they will not. If no deal is reached, far more say congressional Republicans would be more to blame (53%) than President Obama (27%). These opinions are virtually unchanged since early November.

Democrats continue to be much more optimistic about prospects for a fiscal cliff compromise than either Republicans or independents. A majority of Democrats (55%) expect Obama and congressional Republicans will reach an agreement before Jan. 1 to prevent the automatic tax increases and spending cuts. Just 37% of independents and 22% of Republicans say an agreement will be reached.
