Poll: Public Will Blame Congressional GOP For ‘Fiscal Cliff’ Failures

Source: TPM


Nearly half of Americans doubt that President Obama and Congress will strike a deal on the so-called "fiscal cliff" before the year-end deadline but a majority is prepared to blame Republicans on Capitol Hill for such a failure, a poll released Tuesday shows.

The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that 49 percent of Americans do not think an agreement will be reached before January 1, 2013, when self-imposed automatic spending cuts and tax hikes are slated to take effect if a deal is not produced.

But the poll also shows that 53 percent believe that the congressional GOP will be more blameworthy if an agreement isn't ironed out, while 27 percent believe Obama will be more to blame. Twelve percent said that both sides should share the blame equally.

If the fiscal cliff were to happen, the Democrats will win the House in 2014.

What difference does it make if the main stream media blames the Republicans? In the long run it will be obama that will be the villian in this scenario, just as Jimmy (worst president up till now)Carter was blamed for his administration. all good, we never have to worry about another jigger being elected, and the Republicans will enjoy another short period of popularity before the National Republican committee screws it up again.
