    Twenty-nine percent of likely voters would blame Democrats for a government shutdown, compared to 23 percent who would hold Republicans responsible, according to a new poll conducted for The Hill.

    The results are surprising because most people blamed the GOP for the last government shutdown, which occurred during President Clinton’s first term. A week before the 1995 shuttering, polls showed the public blamed Republicans by a two-to-one-margin.

    The Hill’s survey, conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, comes as lawmakers are heading into high-stakes spending negotiations that will seek to avert a shutdown.

    Republicans have a substantial edge among independents: Thirty-four percent would blame Democrats, while only 19 percent would blame the GOP.

    Pulse Opinion is a spinoff of Rasmussen. In fact, the former does all the polling for Rasmussen Reports (which just asks the questions).

    YET ANOTHER thread post from riddler, citing a non-credible and biased pro-right-wing pollster.
    And yet riddler continues to claim that he's an "Independent"!
    As if Independents spend their time day in and day out posting right-wing talking points on the threads here on RJ!
    Nope, they do NOT.
