Two weeks ago, 53% of Likely U.S. Voters said they’d rather have a partial government shutdown until Democrats and Republicans can agree on what spending to cut, while 37% said they’d rather avoid a shutdown by authorizing spending at existing levels. Now, a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 45% favor a shutdown until spending cuts are agreed on, and 46% want to move ahead with spending at existing levels.
This drop was inevitable, as I’ve been saying for months — there was no way public support was going to hold up in the face of determined MSM opposition to the GOP and cheerleading for the Dems.
And until someone — seriously, it’s been months and I’m still waiting — can show me a realistic gameplan for turning around that public perception, then it’s Game Over, Man.
Let. It. Burn.
