Poll: If government careens off fiscal cliff, GOP to shoulder blame
Poll: If government careens off fiscal cliff, GOP to shoulder blame
By Michael O'Brien, NBC News

<snip>

A majority of Americans said in a new, post-election poll that they do not expect President Barack Obama and members of Congress to reach an agreement to avoid the effects of the fiscal cliff, the combination of automatic spending cuts and tax hikes set to take effect at the beginning of the year.

<snip>

Sixty-eight percent of Americans said in the Pew poll that they would expect the impact of the fiscal cliff to be major, and 70 percent said they expect the fallout from the fiscal cliff to be mostly negative.

The president hosted labor leaders at the White House on Tuesday morning in anticipation of the upcoming negotiations, and Obama will host business leaders on Wednesday. Leaders in Congress from both parties head to the White House for talks on Friday.

I hope this poll puts some steel into Democrats and that they keep this public sentiment going. If they don't, or if they cave into the Republicans, I am not interested in the excuses.

1. No excuses this time.
If nothing else just allow the Bush Tax cuts to expire. The Democrats hold all the cards this time.
