Polls: Yes, The GOP Is Losing The Shutdown Fight

Republicans and conservatives insist that they'll emerge victorious from the current budget impasse, but polls have consistently told a different story.

Monday saw a slew of new polling, including findings from outlets that previously conducted surveys on the government shutdown. The latest polls found some movement in public opinion, but that doesn't mean that the circumstances have changed for the GOP.

An ABC News/Washington Post poll on Monday showed 51 percent of the public disapproving of Obama's handling of the budget talks and 61 percent disapproving of congressional Democrats -- amounting to upticks of one and five points respectively since last week. But approval of Obama's handling actually rose four points to 45 percent, while approval of congressional Democrats remained virtually unchanged at 35 percent.

Disapproval of congressional Republicans, meanwhile, jumped from 63 percent in ABC/WaPo's poll last week to 70 percent on Monday. There was little change in the GOP's approval numbers, dipping only two points in ABC/WaPo's polling to 24 percent in the last week.

According to Monday's CNN/ORC International poll, 63 percent said they are angry with the way Republicans have handled the shutdown, slightly more than the 57 percent who expressed anger at Democrats. Fifty-three percent said they are angry with the way Obama has handled the situation.

Those numbers could be seen as an extension of CNN/ORC's pre-shutdown polling, which found 46 percent of Americans saying they would blame Republicans on Capitol Hill for a shutdown compared with 36 percent who said they would fault Obama.

Pew Research Center also conducted polling ahead of the shutdown, finding two weeks ago that about as many Americans said they would blame Republicans as Obama. At that time, 36 percent said they would blame the Obama administration for such an outcome while 39 percent said they would blame the GOP.

Pew's release on Monday suggested that the public is now giving Obama a break: 30 percent said the administration is more to blame for the shutdown, while 38 percent said they blame Republicans.

Instead of being a global leader in health care, we have gradually come to be seen as a laggard.

The system is not so much a national asset, as a national embarrassment, a rickety relic of the utopianism of the 1960s that keeps going only because of a combination of the professional dedication of our health care workers and our willingness to raid other countries to bring in immigrant health care personnel.

As many studies have shown, we do not even achieve the intended value of equal access — all sorts of people, led by politicians, have ways of jumping the queues.

Can Internet Trolls Take Down Obamacare?
A filibuster can’t stop health-care exchanges from starting up Tuesday. But maybe a clever Tea Partier with Internet access can.
Ted Cruz had his chance to derail Obamacare. Now it’s up to Internet trolls.
At least that’s the plan of Dustin Stockton, a top Tea Party strategist who sent out word Friday morning that he is organizing what he has termed “The Great American Troll-Off”—a chance for Tea Partiers to win cash prizes for tweaking the federal government.
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/09...
because as we all know after the dreadful showing at the last Tea Party rally, evidently if you ain't paying the fools they won't join in the circus.
and how bad is when the GOP in Congress needs the help of professional right wing chain email loving trolls?
so what do you think about commercials that tell you how to sign up for Obamacare? averaging 2 an hour here. how they got them past out local GOP censors is a mystery, but they're very compelling commercials. i bet even the local FOXbots are going: Now wait a minute. That's not what Bill told me!

Yup. Obama is able to take out anyone the Muslim Brotherhood orders him to kill.
Obama is nothing more than something like a mob goon for the Muslim Brotherhood, eliminating anyone they want removed from the internal politics of Al Qaeda so the Al Qaeda leadership will be who the Muslim Brotherhood chooses.

Do you think Obama will be the next "boogieman" legend used to scare children in muslim countries like Pakistan?

What Russia did was take the United States completely out of the loop, and put the United States in the position of having to defend the Assad government in Syria.
You are a blind dupe.

Small-Government Conservative Self-Sabotage

Dan McCarthy lays out why current Republican tactics are harmful to the cause of small-government conservatism:

If small-government Republicans, however many of them there are, are undercutting the chances of getting a president who could actually achieve their major goals by today fighting unpopular battles over continuing resolutions and the debt ceiling, are they really serious small-government politicians after all? At the very least, they would be short-sighted and ineffective small-government politicians; at worst, they would be mere actors, mouthing the lines and even performing small-government actions, but actions of no long-term substance.

It would be bad enough if small-government Republicans were merely being short-sighted and committed to a losing strategy, but what makes these tactics more harmful to the cause of small-government conservatism is that they reflect no sense of prudence or consideration of unintended consequences. This is not just a question of making the right political calculation. It is also a question of matching means to ends, and making a correct assessment of the risks and costs involved. If this is how they approach the most basic responsibilities of governing, why are voters going to trust them to implement their larger policy agenda?

Take the recent claims from many conservatives in Congress that there won’t be a default if the debt ceiling isn’t raised. Even if it were technically possible to prioritize payments in the way that they claim, it would still raise borrowing costs, undermine the dollar, and probably induce a recession, and all the while the size and cost of the government would not have been permanently reduced one bit. Toying around with default threatens to impose greater costs on American taxpayers rather than reduce them. It is the perfect example of striking a symbolic blow against fiscal irresponsibility while adding to the country’s fiscal problems. If one seriously wants to control and reduce government debt, raising the debt ceiling ought to be the last thing that one worries about, since refusing to raise it simply makes paying off the debt that has already been incurred more expensive. Making useless “stands” of this kind not only make small-government conservative ideas unappealing to many other Americans and provoke backlashes against them, but they make even those that agree with many of those ideas conclude that their representatives are ill-suited to governing.
