Americans Favor Budget Compromise Over Shutdown, 58%-33%
Edited on Wed Apr-06-11 07:18 PM by cal04
Democrats have slight upper hand on ratings of budget dealings
http://www.gallup.com/poll/146969/Americans-Favor-Budge...

With Congress facing a midnight Friday deadline to pass a federal budget before a partial government shutdown occurs, a new Gallup poll finds Americans rooting for a deal. By 58% to 33%, more Americans want government leaders who share their views on the budget to back a compromise and avert a shutdown rather than hold out for a budget they agree with.



These findings are virtually unchanged from February.

The difficulty for House Speaker John Boehner and other Republican leaders is that rank-and-file Republicans' views on this question are starkly different from those of the public at large. The slight majority of Republicans nationwide, 51%, want the people in government who share their views to hold out for a budget they agree with rather than compromise. This compares with 27% of Democrats and 29% of independents who say the same.

Too bad. . .
