Not all republicans are stupid. Not all conservatives are stupid. Not all tea party members are...well, um--anyways, yeah. A CNBC poll finds that only 19% of Americans support shutting down the government to defund Obamacare. Check this:
When asked about defunding Obamacare if it includes a government shutdown and defaulting, 59 percent of those polled opposed cutting funds to the president’s signature health law, while 19 percent supported it, according to a CNBC All-America Economic Survey conducted by Hart-McInturff out Monday.Now, I'm not one to judge but what in the world are these tea party loons thinking?
Without the possibility of a shutdown, Americans are still against defunding Obamacare generally, 44 percent to 38 percent, the poll found.
While a majority of Republicans who identify with the tea party support defunding Obamacare even if it means a shutdown, by 54 percent, Republicans who do not identify with the tea party oppose doing so, 48 percent to 36 percent.
