Cruz Says Shutdown Has Been a Success

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) brought his pollster to a closed-door GOP lunch to convince members the shutdown was helping the Republican party, David Drucker reports.

"The survey's findings mirrored other national polls: More voters blame the Republicans for the government shutdown than blame President Obama or the Democrats. But Cruz argued, based on the poll, that Republicans are in a much better position than they were during the 1995 shutdown because this impasse is defined by a disagreement over funding for the Affordable Care Act as opposed to a general disagreement over government spending."
