According to a CNN/ORC International poll released Monday 54% of Americans think it’s bad that Republicans control the House. That’s up from 43 percent in December 2012, during the last fiscal standoff. This is the first first time a majority thought GOP control was bad for the country since CNN started asking in December 2010.
The bad news doesn’t stop there:
• 63% percent of respondents want Boehner replaced
• An NBC/WSJ poll taken during the shutdown showed that approval of the Republicans in DC had fallen to a record low of 24%
• A recent Gallup poll showed another record low for the GOP, with only 28 percent approving
• A poll released Sunday funded by Moveon.org and conducted by the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling showed that incumbent Republicans trailed generic Democrats in 15 of 25 competitive House districts.
