Americans blame Republicans more than Democrats for "fiscal cliff":

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/12/27/us-usa-fiscal-poll-idUSBRE8BQ0J620121227

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."

Republicans are OWNING the FISCAL CLIFF

1. I would combine Obama's numbers with the Democrats

16+7=23

Splitting them up makes the statistics look cute, but not very realistic. Obama is a Democrat. Asking who you blame more, Obama or Democrats is going to split that number.

I think Americans overall are pretty pissed off at both parties right now.

7. Democrats 6 % is the smallest amount

and that is what the Polls reveal

27% Republicans

6 % Democrats


that is pretty significant

2. If the largest percent is "All of the above" how are the repubs owning it?

5. 27 % say Republicans are responsible

that is OWNING it

they make up half of the largest percent so you take 27 +1/2 of the largest percent ....that makes Republican and they are the largest

ALL of Congress includes REPUBLICANS so they look like 42 % blame Republicans

3. Would be nice if, in November 2014, people remember who was the face

of obstructionism ... I swear, Boner had far more time in those daily press conferences than Obama had, or Nancy Pelosi EVER had ...

4. Who is more people?

We are politically polarized. 47% of the country voted against the President. The Republicans held control of the House.

It seems obstructionism and the status quo is what the Republic wants. There isn't very many people left in the middle.
