Poll Shows Disapproval of Threat of Government Shutdown

A new New York Times/CBS News poll finds 8 in 10 Americans find it unacceptable for either President Obama or members of Congress to threaten to shut down the government during budget negotiations in order to achieve their goals. Fewer than 1 in 5 think the stalemate between President Obama and the Republicans in Congress is acceptable.

A new Global Strategy Group (D) poll finds 35% would blame Republicans in Congress for a shutdown, 29% would blame President Obama and another 12% would blame congressional Democrats -- a total of 41% blaming either Obama or his Democratic allies in Congress.
