The Associated Press-GfK survey, is out and no one has a reason to gloat, least of all President Obama, whose job approval rating has hit an all time low of 37%, while his disapproval rating rises to 53%.
The poll also shows that 62% mainly blame republicans but that about 50% say Obama and democrats in the congress share much of the blame. That seems like a contradiction. But it is easily explained. The media has decided to place the fault on the republicans and respondents give that answer automatically, but when asked to consider Obama’s and the democrat’s role in the shutdown, they place the blame on both.
