Poll: Majority of GOP say shutdown is 'embarrassing for the country'

Source: The Hill

A majority of Republicans in a new survey say the partial government shutdown is "embarrassing for the country."

The new NPR/Ipsos poll reports that three-quarters of all respondents believe the ongoing shutdown is “embarrassing."

As the shutdown nears the end of its third week, it is now tied for the longest in U.S. history.

Nearly 70 percent of respondents in the survey said the shutdown is going to hurt the country and the economy. The same portion of respondents say Congress should pass a bill to reopen the government now, while only 30 percent believe the government should stay closed until there is funding for a border wall.

5. Treasonous Donald Trump is the embarrassment, the GOP's refusal to act is the embarrassment

The government shutdown is only the result of the other shit. Do something, Republicans!

6. There's that 30% again.

Trump could tear the arms and legs off a baby live on television at one of one of his rallies and not lose a supporter. If he destroyed the United States while standing on the WH portico holding hands with Putin he would still have that 30%. If he nuked California he would still have that 30%. If he melted the Statue of Liberty down for it metal the 30% would cheer.

They are a bunch of sick puppies.

10. It's not embarrassing. It's harmful

And they approve. Withholding pay from employees who work in good faith, and they approve. Diverting disaster relief from Americans who lost everything, and they approve. Intentionally causing Americans to lose their homes, savings, health, and lives, and they approve.

And, if you demand the culprits be held to account for the fruits of this cruel endeavor, it is sadly obvious that you demand one which they will not approve. In the best case it would require them to admit their own complicity, a step many are unwilling to take. In the worst case, it is because they truly approve of hurting their own country and fellow Americans.

Good to know there are a lot of smart folks out there. It is the other 30% that are dangerous to the US.
