in Uncategorized by

If the federal government shuts down on Tuesday, a new CNN/ORC poll finds that 46% of Americans say they would blame congressional Republicans, with 36% saying President Obama would be more responsible and 13% pointing fingers at both the GOP in Congress and Obama.

In a separate question, 49% of all people in the poll say that Obama is acting like a responsible adult in this budget battle, with 47% describing him as a spoiled child. Meanwhile, 58% say congressional Democrats are acting like spoiled children, with that number rising to 69% for the GOP in Congress.
