Look, according to CNN's own polling done early Sept on a range of issues
Obama's handling of the:
economy in general = 56% disapprove
Federal budget deficit = 61% disapprove
Health care = 55% disapprove
and people say the economy is by far the most important issue facing the country today outweighing health care by 25 points. So, the take away for me anyway is that Obama is stinking up the joint at doing his job, and although people don't want to see a govt shutdown over Obamacare, Obama is not done his job in making sure this turd of a law is clear either...
Here are the internals of the poll I looked at:
There are a couple of things that I think if this is protracted that demo's have a problem with, 1. republicans ARE trying to negotiate, and compromise, and all demo's are doing is calling names and distorting things....Although no one is going to come out of this looking good, it is just not factual to try and make it appear as though repubs will bear the entire blame in this.
