WNE Polling - Govt Shutdown, Health Care TABLES (Oct 2013)

WNE Polling - Govt Shutdown, Health Care TABLES (Oct 2013)

Ratings: (0)|Views: 103|Likes:
A new poll finds that a majority of Massachusetts residents are blaming GOP lawmakers for the partial shutdown of the federal government. The telephone survey conducted by Western New England University's Polling Institute found 56% of respondents say Republicans in Congress bear the greatest responsibility for the shutdown, while 16% blame President Obama. 18% pointed the finger at both parties and the President, and only 5% blamed Democrats. Those numbers may not be all that surprising in a “blue” state. But Institute Director Tim Vercelotti says what is surprising is that more than half of Republican voters surveyed and more than three quarters of those identified as un-enrolled or independent disapprove of the job the GOP is doing in Congress.
