    "According to the poll, the GOP gets more of the blame for the shutdown, with 44 percent of Americans blaming them compared with 35 percent who blame Obama."
    This suggests the poll results are like the ACA poll results -- sure, a majority might not like the ACA, but that's because a chunk of us who don't like it want single-payer.
    Likewise, here there's clearly a chunk of folks who disapprove of the shutdown, but only because they think of it as the "Obama shutdown" rather than the "Republican shutdown."
    Just trying to keep it real, and not go too deep into a left-wing echo chamber. Obama's 9 points ahead on this one, not 47 points.
