Brutal new poll (for Trump and GOP) re: the wall and shutdown

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/americans-blame-trump-and-gop-much-more-than-democrats-for-shutdown-post-abc-poll-finds/2019/01/12/9c89aff2-16a9-11e9-90a8-136fa44b80ba_story.html

By a wide margin, more Americans blame President Trump and Republicans in Congress than congressional Democrats for the now record-breaking government shutdown, and most reject the presidentís assertion that there is an illegal-immigration crisis on the southern border, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll.


Concerning the allocation of blame, 53 percent say Trump and the Republicans are mainly at fault, and 29 percent blame the Democrats in Congress. Thirteen percent say both sides bear equal responsibility for the shutdown. That is identical to the end of the 16-day shutdown in 2013, when 29 percent blamed then-President Barack Obama and 53 percent put the responsibility on congressional Republicans.

A predictable partisan divide shapes the blame game, with 85 percent of Democrats citing Trump and Republicans as the cause and 68 percent of Republicans pointing the finger at congressional Democrats. Independents fix the blame squarely on the president and his party rather than on the Democrats, by 53 percent to 23 percent. Women blame Trump and Republicans by a margin of 35 points, and men blame the president and the GOP by 13 points.


That independents figure should have the GOP shitting in their pants. Brutal.

1. Letrs how how low support goes for GOP and Trump in coming weeks/months

 

this is where the motivation will kick in on McConnel with 2020 elections around the corner.

We can survive, govt workers can survive. No bowing to a tyrant

2. Wait, didn't I see polls showing that the

Republican party was least in the blame? That t-rump had a higher % of blame and the Democrats were second.

Shakes head. The Republican party and t-rump are one in the same.

5. Good point.........

and they had 2 years of control of both the House and Senate - and still failed to get it done.

Maybe IQ45 should be yelling:

"Failing
Mitch McConnell and Failing Paul Ryan!"

(He does like to give nicknames, doesn't he?)

(And where is the one for his buddy Vlad?)

8. I would refer to that as "Take Healthcare away from millions "

So if illegal immigration is an emergency, why was it more important for Republicans to

1. Take healthcare away from million?

2. Give tax breaks to the rich?

9. Every day this shutdown continues

Many more American people will be running from trump and the republicans, and only further insure the Democrats take complete control of our government again. They've hurt many millions of people now, and will regret it soon,especially after they all are exposed .

10. This is significant. Earlier polls showed independents blaming both parties equally

Keep in mind, a higher percentage of Americans are registered as Democrats than Republicans, but independents are more likely to vote Republican. In other words, many of the people blaming Trump are people who usually vote Republican.

Also, I think the number of Republicans who blame the Democrats has fallen a bit. This is just bad news for Trump all around.
