Washington Post-ABD News Poll

BEST NUMBER FOR REPUBLICANS In the new Washington Post-ABC News poll, The Fix writes, “When asked who would do a better job “finding the right balance between cutting government spending that is not needed and continuing government spending that is needed”, 44% named Republicans in Congress while 43% chose President Obama.” BEST NUMBER FOR DEMOCRATS 72% Disapproval for Republicans in Congress Poll Results. SEQUESTRATION STUMBLE The Fix writes, “In January and February, President Obama was carrying the fight to Republicans on budget issues — winning major concessions on revenue in a fiscal cliff deal and watching as the GOP postponed a showdown over the debt ceiling. As the March 1 deadline for sequestration approached, Obama seemed to be sprinting toward a clear political win. This poll makes clear that Obama has tumbled from the political heights he enjoyed in the first two months of the year. His approval rating now sits at 50% with 46% disapproving, a far cry from the 55% approve/41% disapprove score he enjoyed in a mid-January.”
