Public Overwhelmingly Rejects GOP Handling of Debt Crisis

A new CBS News poll finds Americans "are unimpressed with their political leaders' handling of the debt ceiling crisis."

Key finding: A majority disapprove of all the involved parties' conduct, but Republicans in Congress fare the worst, with just 21% backing their intransigent resistance to raising taxes. A stunning 71% disapprove.

President Obama earned more generous approval ratings for his handling of the negotiations, but still more people said they disapproved (48%) than approved (43%).
