Nearly three-quarters of Americans disapprove of Republicans' handling of the budget crisis, according to an ABC/Washington Post poll released Monday.

Disapproval of the GOP, which has risen steadily since just before the government shutdown began, is now at 74 percent, up 11 points from late September.

A majority of Americans are also discontented with Democrats' role in the budget negotiations. But disapproval ratings for Democrats in Congress and for President Barack Obama, both of which started at a lower level than disapproval of Republicans in Congress, have remained largely unchanged in the past two weeks. Sixty-one percent of Americans now dislike congressional Democrats' handling of the crisis, while 53 percent dislike Obama's. Those are rises of only 5 points and 3 points, respectively, from before the shutdown began.

Very true. And it is WAAAY past time for babyobama to realize and take responsibility for the messes and mistakes he has been making. Instead of blaming others for what he has done.

To me, a Real Man admits to his mistakes instead of blaming others for them.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, of South Carolina, said the Democractic party had experienced the "best two weeks" in recent history. "When we evaluate the last couple of weeks, it should be entitled the time of great lost opportunity," he said. "If we had been focused on the rollout of Obamacare and its confusion, public support would have diminished. Instead, our numbers have gone down, Obamacare has mysteriously gone up, and other than that, this has been great."

Graham was scathing about the influence of conservative advocacy groups such as Heritage Action, which torpedoed a deal on Tuesday when it threatened to withdraw support from Republicans who backed it. He also warned of the damage that the party had inflicted on itself.

"The way we are behaving and the path we have taken the last couple of weeks leads to a marginalised party in the eyes of the American people," he said.
