Republicans Are Losing the Spending Argument

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds 67% of those questioned disapprove of the "way Republicans in Congress are handling federal spending."

Key findings: "Forty-four percent of self-identified Republicans approve of how their side is handling spending issues, while 51% disapprove. Even the base of the party is less than enthusiastic about how the congressional GOP has approached the issue -- with 50% of conservative Republicans approving and 49% disapproving. Compare that to the nearly nine in ten (87%) of liberal Democrats who approve of how Obama has handled federal spending."

Roll Call: Senate GOP divided on sequester alternative.
