GOP brand in the dumper

You all know how I feel about polls but this new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll is so stunning it has even the tragically jaded journos dragging their jaws across the floor.
By a 22-point margin (53 percent to 31 percent), the public blames the Republican Party more for the shutdown than President Barack Obama – a wider margin of blame for the GOP than the party received during the poll during the last shutdown in 1995-96.

Just 24 percent of respondents have a favorable opinion about the GOP, and only 21 percent have a favorable view of the Tea Party, which are both at all-time lows in the history of poll.

...a whopping 70 percent say congressional Republicans are putting politics first.
Once again, thanks Crackpot Caucus. This couldn't happen without you.

GOP seeing the worst numbers in the history of our politics. Dems would be crazy to bail them out. No way should they accept a paltry six week extension. Republicans claim they want to negotiate, then by definition Dems should counter with a demand for at least 24 weeks. With the people tired of the shutdown already, let the GOPers argue against ending it. Not that I'm holding my breath for that.
