    The diary reports the poll correctly.

    Of those who disapprove of the ACA, only 38% support shutting down the government.

    59% of those who disapprove of the ACA are opposed to shutting down the government.

      Which is probably the worst news for Republicans in the whole picture. Even in the minority the people for whom Republicans are supposedly setting off this suicide bomb, 50% more are against the bombing than for it.

      And I'd bet a lot of them were also very much against literally bombing Syria last month the way these same Republicans demanded, that Democrats saved us from.

      The "suicide" in "suicide bomber" has rarely been so valuable a silver lining.

      that shutting down the government did NOT actually shut down implementation of the ACA. I suspect a lot of people were convinced (by the right-wingers) that it would stop the ACA.
