Poll: Majority of GOP say shutdown is 'embarrassing for the country' [View all]

Source: The Hill

A majority of Republicans in a new survey say the partial government shutdown is "embarrassing for the country."

The new NPR/Ipsos poll reports that three-quarters of all respondents believe the ongoing shutdown is “embarrassing."

As the shutdown nears the end of its third week, it is now tied for the longest in U.S. history.
