    Polls: people blame the gop for the fiscal cliff mess

    Republicans Are Getting Hammered For Their Handling Of The Fiscal Cliff Talks

    In another sign that Republicans could have a tough time winning a public-opinion battle over a deal to avert the fiscal cliff, a new Gallup poll released Tuesday displays staggeringly low approval ratings for Congressional Republicans on their handling of the negotiations thus far.

    The poll finds that only 27 percent of respondents approve of how Republican leaders in Congress are handling negotiations on the fiscal cliff so far. An astounding 63 percent disapprove. By comparison, 52 percent approve of President Barack Obama's handling, while only 43 percent disapprove.

    Earlier on Tuesday, a Washington Post/Pew Research poll found that 53 percent of Americans would blame Republicans if no deal is reached. Only 27 percent said they would blame Obama.
