New polling for the Wall Street Journal/NBC suggests that the Republican party rather than President Obama is paying a political price for the government shutdown. By 53% to 31% the sample put the blame on the party.
To another question the poll found that just 24% said they had a favourable view of the Republicans – an all time low. A the same time Obamaâ€™s own approval ratings are remaining stable.
The brinkmanship over the Federal budget is part of a Republican attempt to impede Obama care.
