(Reuters) - Americans blame Republicans in Congress more than congressional Democrats or President Barack Obama for the current "fiscal cliff" crisis, as the deadline approaches for action to avert big tax increases and spending cuts, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Thursday.
When asked who they believed to be more responsible for the "fiscal cliff" situation, 27 percent blamed Republicans in Congress, 16 percent blamed Obama and 6 percent pointed to Democrats in Congress. The largest percentage - 31 percent - blamed "all of the above."

The big news media has most Americans under complete mind control. The news media are marxists/democrats/liberals
I do not care who the poll responders blame.
I blame them for Obama
I find it funny that all these organizations that say the American people blame the GOP for the “fiscal cliff” are part of the MSM liberal Cabal.
If these folks are too stupid to realize who is to blame, they deserve what’s coming to them.
No surprise here. Bonehead was the face of the cliff for weeks.
He was so out front on TV everyday, while Reid and Obama hid.
Americans may not know the details, but Boneheads over exposure
became the face of the cliff. No surprise Americans blame the GOP.
Failures during Bush White House and Democrat House and Senate: Bush gets blamed.
Failures during Obama White House and Democrat Senate and House: Bush still blamed.
Failures during Obama White House and Democrat Senate and GOP House: GOP gets blamed.
It is all clear now.
CUT SPENDING!! CREATE JOBS !!
Those are the only ways we can ever balance the books.
Goes to show that folks are fed up with all of the above politicos.
“The big news media has most Americans under complete mind control. The news media are marxists/democrats/liberals”
All true,but the big story that all seem to have forgotten is that Obama won through fraud.
All seem to just accept the same news story that he won. He corrupted the system and the media propagates the story.
We live in a media corrupt society. Believe nothing these liars in the media tell you. They are all complicit.
Republicans are 100% to blame. If it weren’t for them, the democrats would have repealed the debt ceiling entirely, and would not have to worry about spending limits at all. It is all that fiscal sanity that is to blame.
Yup. Agree 100%. Screw ‘em.
Who cares? People voted for a divided government. That is what they got.
I hope they do little if anything. Everyone needs skin in this game. Tax and cut. That’ll be interesting.
The Republicans spend millions each year on media and communications consultants and are still completely inept at getting their message out and countering the Dem lies. Lots of overpaid, incompetent, Republican hacks.
Why is that? Must be the MSM. How can they control 2/3 of the government but get less than half the blame?

Another poll, timed to coincide with today’s Rasmussen poll and with Obama’s return from his Hawaii vacation. All of them orchestrated to shape public opinion in favor of Obama.
That fairly well covers it, Laz.
