CNN/ORC Poll: One Thing Majority of Americans Agree On

Washington can stick their debt deal up their childish asses. The CNN Political Unit reports:

A majority of Americans disapprove of the deal struck Sunday by President Barack Obama and congressional leaders that will raise the country’s legal borrowing limit, and three out of four believe elected officials have acted like “spoiled children.”
According to a CNN/ORC International poll conducted Monday during a House of Representatives vote on the legislation, 52 percent of Americans say they are opposed to the debt ceiling deal while 44 percent are in favor of it. The Senate passed the legislation Tuesday in a 74-26 vote.

“Everyone disapproves of some part of the debt ceiling compromise,” CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said. “Republicans dislike the increase in the debt ceiling through 2013, Democrats dislike the lack of tax increases on businesses and higher-income Americans, and independents dislike both of those provisions.” 

The current approval rating for Congress is now at 14 percent, which is an all-time low. Frankly, I can’t believe there are that many Americans that actually do approve of them. Sixty-eight percent disapprove of how the Republican leaders handled the debt ceiling, and sixty-three percent disapprove of the Democratic leaders, and 53 percent disapprove of President Obama’s leadership. All stats taken from CNN/ORC poll.
