Support for Shutdown Plummets

September 30th, 2013 - 12:40 pm


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.

Think Sequester. Public was agin that, too, until they saw it had near-zero effect.
Closing down Fed Museums and National Parks has lessened effect now that summer is over.
A bunch of Fed drones unpaid- how many folks working 29 1/2 hr per week care?
Suppose Obama cuts off air traffic controllers and air travel stops? Any money on who gets blamed for that? Make the argument that Obama has a chocie and chose to exercise it in the most detructive way possible.

Which is precisely why the far better approach is to let O-care start on schedule. And then form a few "public interest" groups to sue the Administration on the legality of all those waivers. Make sure the inevitable suckage applies to everyone equally under the law. Either public perception forces the necessary repeal or there is nothing worth saving.
