A new Pew Research/Washington Post poll finds just 40% of Americans think President Obama and House Republicans will reach a deal on the fiscal cliff by January 1 to prevent automatic tax increases and spending cuts from taking effect, while 49% say they will not.

If no deal is reached, 53% say congressional Republicans are to blame while just 27% think Obama is at fault.
