1. Somehow these poll questions seem archaic to me.

Now that we know that there is a good chance that the Republicans won't negotiate in good faith (based on prior experience and current bluster), shouldn't the polls be also asking what people support should negotiations fail? The current questions make it look like if the Republicans block solutions, the Democrats should just do nothing. Wouldn't it be nice to know if the public supports the Democrats trying to find a solution that is not a Grand Bargain? The answer to questions like that might show the Republicans that the people are ready to drop them, not back them up. (Even if implementation of a one-party solution is difficult to impossible.)

Are the people really in love with Ryan type compromises, for example?
