Georgia poll: Shutdown Dems’ fault

Special to SEGAZINE

Georgians blame Democrats more than Republicans for the federal government shutdown, according to a new poll.

But that’s largely a function of the Democrats’ control of two-thirds of the parties involved in the dispute: the White House and the U.S. Senate.

According to the survey of 1,000 active voters, conducted Oct. 1, 32.6 percent blame President Barack Obama for the failure to continue funding the federal government past the end of September, while 38.8 percent blame the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives.

But when you add the 13.1 percent who blame the Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate, it tips the scale of blame to the Democrats at 45.7 percent.

    How is it possible for anyone to be alive today & not know that it was shut down by the “Tea Party” in the House? Doesn’t sound as if it’s an independent poll. Maybe 1000 people who watch Faux News all day.
