Polls Shows Massive Public Disapproval of GOP Handling of Debt Crisis

Next time Marsha Blackburn, or John Boehner, or Eric Cantor, say the American people want Washington to “stop the spending” and “get our fiscal house in order,” they should be forced to stand up at the mic and read these poll results out loud:

Americans are unimpressed with their political leaders’ handling of the debt ceiling crisis, with a new CBS News poll showing a majority disapprove of all the involved parties’ conduct, but Republicans in Congress fare the worst, with just 21 percent backing their resistance to raising taxes.

President Obama earned the most generous approval ratings for his handling of the weeks-old negotiations, but still more people said they disapproved (48 percent) than approved (43 percent) of what he has done and said.
