If Congress is unable to come to a deal to increase America's debt ceiling, more Americans will blame Republicans than will blame President Obama, says a new poll by Quinnipiac University.
According to the survey, released on Thursday, 48 percent of Americans say they will blame Republicans, not President Obama, if the country's $14.3 debt limit is not raised. Thirty-four percent said they would blame Mr. Obama rather than the GOP.
The poll comes on the heels of a tense round of negotiations over a deal to raise the U.S. debt ceiling, varying accounts of which describe everything from an abrupt walk-out by Mr. Obama, to "childish" behavior by leading Republican Eric Cantor.
The survey indicates, however, that as much as Americans disapprove of Mr. Obama's economic leadership, they trust him more than they trust Republicans on the issue: 56 percent of respondents said they disapproved of how the president is dealing with the economy, but 45 percent said they trusted him more than they trusted Republicans to deal with it.

Where did they conduct this poll? Rhode Island?
Why do they use that word, “blame”?
If the Republicans hold fast against any debt ceiling increases, isn’t the proper term, “give credit to”?

Liars. Quinnipiac is notoriously Leftist.

What do you expect from CBS?
Brought to you by the CBS (Complete Bull Shit) Network, in the tank for the Democrats since 1929,
So the public says in polls they don’t want it raised.
But they will “blame” the GOP if it isn’t.
Sooooo what is the R/D/I in this one? 5/80/10?

It is up to the House to put up a budget. If they don’t it is no one’s fault but their own.
