More people say Republicans in Congress rather than President Barack Obama would be responsible if the federal government shuts down starting Tuesday because of a bitter partisan battle over the new health care law, according to a new CNN/ORC International poll.
With just hours before funding for the federal government runs out at 12:01 a.m. ET Tuesday, the poll showed that most Americans also think congressional Republicans are acting like “spoiled children” in this fiscal fight, with the public divided on whether the president is acting like a spoiled child or a responsible adult.
The poll was conducted for CNN by ORC International September 27-29, with 803 adults nationwide questioned by telephone. The survey’s overall sampling error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
