PEW poll showing Repugnants will be blamed, mostly, if we go over 'Fical Cliff'

[font size="3"]According to this poll John Boehner's obscene attempts to put the blame for this impasse on the PResident don't seem to be having the hoped-for effect. [/font]

(emphasis my own)
The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press and The Washington Post, conducted Nov. 28-Dec. 2 among 1,003 adults, finds continued pessimism over prospects for a deficit agreement.

Four-in-ten (40%) expect that the president and congressional Republicans will reach a deal by Jan. 1 to prevent automatic tax increases and spending cuts from taking effect; 49% say they will not. If no deal is reached, far more say congressional Republicans would be more to blame (53%) than President Obama (27%). These opinions are virtually unchanged since early November.

Democrats continue to be much more optimistic about prospects for a fiscal cliff compromise than either Republicans or independents. A majority of Democrats (55%) expect Obama and congressional Republicans will reach an agreement before Jan. 1 to prevent the automatic tax increases and spending cuts. Just 37% of independents and 22% of Republicans say an agreement will be reached.
