Word has it Congressional Republicans are all in a lather over the latest poll showing they’re being blamed for the govt shutdown more than the President and Democrats.
They should relax…as usual, a skewed-Democrat poll; heavily weighted Democrat (+11% vs Republican), and 20% govt workers (2.5x more than the American avg).
And, after reading the 17-page poll, it’s evident no one was asked if they knew what the Republican position was in the current negotiations – just asking who was to blame.
With polling heavily weighted Democrat, with Obama and his media minions misstating the GOP position, it would be shocking if Republicans WEREN’T blamed.
What the media won’t tell you: the poll showed respondents think O’care was a bad idea, that Obama’s pushing his own agenda, and more disapprove of him than approve.
Even heavily weighted to favor Democrats!
Republicans have two simple and fair demands from Democrats and Obama…
House Republicans demand a 1-year delay of O’care’s individual mandate. Democrats gave Business a 1-year delay…individual citizens deserve the same break.
House Republicans demand Congress shouldn’t exempt themselves from O’care…they should have to comply with the law just like everyone. Who can argue against that?
If polled respondents actually knew this, the results would have been very different.
Call your Republican Congressman, and tell them to stand strong.
