Americans Overwhelmingly Opposed to GOP Approach

A new National Journal poll reports finds Americans "are divided on who deserves blame for the government shutdown, but one thing's certain: A solid majority thinks it's wrong to demand changes to Obamacare as a price for reopening the government."

Key findings: 38% say Republicans are to blame for the stalemate, 30% say it's President Obama, and 19% say it's both.

"But public opinion is clearer on the House GOP's approach: Overwhelmingly, Americans think Congress should fund the federal government and deal with health care separately; and just as strongly, Americans oppose including GOP priorities--even those with which they otherwise agree--in a bargain to raise the debt ceiling."
