QUINNIPIAC POLL out this a.m.: “American voters oppose 72-22 percent Congress shutting down the federal government to block implementation of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare … Voters also oppose 64-27 percent blocking an increase in the nation’s debt ceiling as a way to stop Obamacare … American voters are divided on Obamacare, with 45 percent in favor and 47 percent opposed, but they are opposed 58-34 percent to Congress cutting off funding for the health care law to stop its implementation. Republicans support the federal government shutdown by a narrow 49-44 percent margin, but opposition is 90-6 percent among Democrats and 74-19 percent among independent voters. President Barack Obama gets a negative 45-49 percent overall job approval rating, [statistically unchanged from] 46-48 percent score August 2. American voters disapprove 74-17 percent of the job Republicans in Congress are doing, their lowest score ever, and disapprove 60-32 percent of the job Democrats are doing.”

FWIW - Party ID for this poll:

Republican    24%
Democrat     35%
Independent 31%
Other/DK/NA  9%
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

They had these polls ready to go within 10 seconds after midnight.

And the outcome was already known.

Some polls have asked that question directly. Even in those polls, a majority  of those who opposed Obamacare also opposed shutting down the government because of it.

Very few people want to deliberately cause a shutdown-- namely anarchists, big-L Libertarians, and idiots. The question is whether it is a necessary evil, a good thing or a bad thing. A good thing is the 22%. The "bad thing" and "necessary evil" adds up to 72%.

We'd rather the Senate back down and come to the table.
