Conservatives Say Shutdown Won't Hurt GOP

NBC News reports that "a prominent conservative group marshaled new polling data on Wednesday to try and convince reluctant Republicans that forcing a government shutdown over 'Obamacare' wouldn't necessarily harm the GOP, or cost the party control of the House of Representatives."

"Heritage Action for America - one of the conservative groups leading the charge to pressure Republican lawmakers against voting to continue government spending unless they can defund President Barack Obama's health care law - said its new poll of likely voters in 10 relatively competitive congressional districts showed that forcing such a shutdown would not be fatal for the GOP in 2014."
