Half of public would blame GOP for shutdown

By Rebecca Shabad – 12/01/14 11:08 AM EST

Half of the public would blame GOP lawmakers for a government shutdown while only a third would blame President Obama, according to a CNN survey released Monday.

Thirteen percent, meanwhile, said Republicans and the president would both be responsible while 2 percent said neither should be blamed or said they had no opinion.

A plurality of people polled said a government shutdown that would last a few days would be a major problem. Just under a quarter said it would be a minor problem and 20 percent said it would be a crisis.

The government shutdown in October 2013 lasted 16 days.Among the political parties, 82 percent of Democrats would blame Republicans in Congress for a shutdown while 10 percent of Democrats would blame Obama.

Just over 60 percent of Republican voters would blame Obama and just under a quarter would blame members of their own party.

More independents would blame Republicans for a shutdown than they would the president.

Congress has 10 days to pass a new spending bill or the government could shut down again. Conservatives have been pushing GOP leaders to defund Obama’s immigration order through appropriations bills and the House GOP Conference is expected to debate its next steps in a closed-door meeting Tuesday morning.

The poll surveyed 1,045 adults between Nov. 21-23 with a 3 percentage point margin of error.
