Fiscal Cliff: Public Would Blame GOP

A majority of Americans would blame congressional Republicans if Washington fails to reach a deal in deficit talks to avoid the “fiscal cliff,” according to a new poll. A Washington Post-Pew Research survey released Tuesday finds that 53 percent said they would blame Republicans, while 27 percent said President Obama would be at fault. Twelve percent said the blame should be divided equally between the two sides. The survey represents added pressure for GOP lawmakers as they seek to rally public support amid the contentious negotiations/Jonathan Easley, The Hill. More here.

Question: Which side would you blame if Washington fails to reach a deal in deficit talks to avoid the “fiscal clilff”?
