    the poll on obamacares was that 45% of Americans are in favor of the law, while 47% are opposed to it. that's only a 2% difference.

    however the poll shows that american voters oppose shutting down the government over obamacare by 72% to 22%

    and American voters oppose blocking the increase of the debt ceiling as a way to stop Obamacare 64% to 27%.

    and why is this poll "skewed"?

    It doesn't really matter who's at fault so stop bickering about it. If the tables were turned it would be the Dems blocking it and the GOP wanting to lift the ceiling. This has nothing to do with Tea Party tactics. It's dirty, corrupt politics. Whoever the party is that's not in power spends all its time trying to obstruct and defame the party that is in power. That's the glory of the two-party merry-go-round. No one is looking out for the best interest of this country anymore. It's essentially a battle between ideological fanatics and corporate interests at this point.

    Come Feb 2014 none of this is going to matter, if what the stars have predicted is true.

    Proof that it is the Democrats who are holding the government hostage, not the Republicans.
    In the progressive brain it's because the republicans aren't giving progressives whatever the **** they want when they want it..

    Progressives feel entitled to whatever they want when they want it and this just goes to prove that....

    Remember when a 5-year-old wants a candy bar and throws a fit for one and mommy says no - it's never their fault for acting like the children they are - it's "mommies fault."

    Well you're seeing the same thing happen today on capitol hill - democrats are the 5-year-olds crying for candy and republicans are the parent saying "no." "No" being Obamacare.

    "if you don't give me candy mommy I'm not going to clean my room"

    It's a majority in every poll, some far more than 2%, though that really doesn't make that much difference when we're talking about representation. Those reps have a duty to stick to what their constituency dictates, that's the job.

    Typical skew - formulating the questions to receive the desired answer.

    All polling orgs seem to do it from time to time, and Quinnipac seems to go in phases. But all polls, no.

    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    and that was only one poll, but sense you have faith in that Quinnipiac poll you need to read the part that the vast majority of the public blame both parties equally for the shut down by 58% so the democrats all not going to walk away from this undamaged like they think they will

    the republican children, being expected to share the available candy, instead hide it, so that no one can have any
