Poll: 71% shun GOP handling of debt crisis

By Tucker Reals

Updated 9 a.m. ET

CBS News Poll analysis by the CBS News Polling Unit: Sarah Dutton, Jennifer De Pinto, Fred Backus and Anthony Salvanto.


Americans are unimpressed with their political leaders' handling of the debt ceiling crisis, with a new CBS News poll showing a majority disapprove of all the involved parties' conduct, but Republicans in Congress fare the worst, with just 21 percent backing their resistance to raising taxes.



President Obama earned the most generous approval ratings for his handling of the weeks-old negotiations, but still more people said they disapproved (48 percent) than approved (43 percent) of what he has done and said.

Obama is cowering in fear of that 21%.

Not quite sure I agree on that...

This is a difficult issue to poll because "Obama" is defined pretty well, but when you talk about the Republicans, who do you mean? - Mickey Cantor, Paul Ryan, Corburn, McConnell....?

There is no "one" GOP voice so you really cant do any "head to head" polling that makes sense.

Looking at the 8 most recent polls in the RealClearPolitics average:

FOX News                                            45   46    -1
Gallup                                                    42   48    -6
Rasmussen Reports                                  44   54    -10
USA Today/Gallup                                    45   50    -5
NBC News/Wall St. Jrnl                             47   48    -1
ABC News/Wash Post                               47   48    -1
Reuters/Ipsos                                           49   46    +3
Quinnipiac                                            47   46    +1

So, on average, a couple points "under water"

Obama is in the grey area of polling where he is weak, but not dead - Rather similar to what Bush polled in 2004 - low enough to be worrisome, but high enough to give him a fighting chance.

Again, this is hard to poll in the sense any damage to Obama is specific to Obama, while any damage the "Republican Brand" suffers may, or may not, translate onto the eventual GOP nominiee in 2012

The point of the poll isn't really to predict the outcome of the 2012 election (which Obama will probably lose anyway, for other reasons), but to show that a majority of americans do understand who is causing their country to collapse.
