  •  It is my belief that the shutdown hurt Obama... (1+ / 0-)

    ...a lot more than the GOP.  It wasn't noticed at the time, since the GOP got the brunt of the polling hit initially, but the longer term effects hit the president.  My evidence for this thesis lies int eh comparison of polling now vs. the polling in 2011 during the fiscal crisis.  Back then, the GOP took a sharp hit, too... only to recover after a few weeks and the brunt of the blame shifted to the president.  I think the ACA stuff lately is only part of the story.  I think the shutdown is hurting the president, too... look at the exit polls in VA where the president was tied with the GOP in who was to blame for the shutdown.  Like in 2011, the electoral effect was delayed.

    GODSPEED TO THE WISCONSIN FOURTEEN!
