Shutdown Was a Bigger Deal Than Botched Website

A new Kaiser Family Foundation poll finds that 44% of Americans say they paid very close attention to the fight over the budget and the debt limit that led to a government shutdown. In contrast, just 22% say they've paid attention to the problems with the Obamacare website rollout.

The Fix: "So, while Republicans were dominating the headlines with their fight against Obamacare in the budget debate, the real-world problems with the law were going overlooked by the public for much of last month. In short, Republicans couldn't get out of their own way."
