Ok risking being flamed as being a troll and a hack...Im still going to give a personal observation. Since the day after the election, every poll ive seen about anything has been detrimental to the GOP. I cant believe that all the rosey polls leading up to the last tuesday were on the up and up...I know the conservatives blamed All pollsters with positive results for Obama as being dishonest...but its now fact that all the republican polsters and pundits were DEAD WRONG and its becoming more apparent just how dishonest they were.
Rasmussen who I always valued as the best or one of the top 3 polsters is a total FAIL and I unsubscribed from his daily polls because I can absolutely no longer trust his results...his results leading up the election were so out of whack with everyone elses its not possible for me to believe he wasnt playing partisan games...he actually had ohio a tie and penns going to romney and other absurdities...the most accurate turned out to be NYT/CBS Gallup and Pew...
Americans are prepared to blame Congressional Republicans any failure to avert the fiscal cliff, according to a poll on Tuesday.Poll: Blame GOP for cliff diving - Kevin Robillard - POLITICO.com
While 51 percent of Americans don’t expect a deal, Democrats have substantially more faith than Republicans in the the ability of President Barack Obama and Congressional Republicans to compromise, according to the Washington Post-Pew Research Center poll. Two-thirds of a Republicans aren’t anticipating a deal, and only a quarter expect one. But a plurality of Democrats — 47 percent to 40 percent — expect Obama and the GOP to reach an agreement.
Congressional Republicans are likely to face the blame for any impact: 53 percent of Americans said the GOP would be at fault, compared with 29 percent who said the same of the president. Ten percent said both would be to blame. The gap is even bigger among independent voters, only 23 percent of whom would blame the president.
