"Most Americans disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job, the poll suggests, with 53 percent unhappy with his performance and 37 percent approving of it. Congress is scraping rock bottom, with a ghastly approval rating of 5 percent. Indeed, anyone making headlines in the dispute has earned poor marks for his or her trouble, whether it's Democrat Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader, or Republican John Boehner, the House speaker, both with a favorability rating of 18 percent."

No wonder Obama blinked first. 37% ouch!

As financial markets show signs of worry, White House plans meetings with lawmakers

'With financial markets reflecting growing concern about the potential for a U.S. default, the White House on Wednesday announced a series of meetings with lawmakers from both parties to focus on the government shutdown, looming debt crisis and festering fiscal stalemate."

Even with the non-stop propaganda from the leftist media, Obama numbers are still taking a huge hit.

The so called leftist media doesn't really have to do much.  This is out and out treason on the part of the Repubs but it will come back to bite em'.  Here in Australia we have just gotten a new right wing gov. (installed by Murdoch) after the success of years of the same kinds of strategies (from the Murdock play book).  Now the mongrels are in they can't seem to do a thing or get anything right and the left have respected democracy and let them get established.  All of the promises that they have attempted to implement have backfired and the government is losing money left right and center.  It's very soon out of the gate but the public are starting to miss the government that kept us out of the GFC.

Right wing mud slinging is to be expected but if all the party can do is oppose what the sitting party is doing then when it succeeds and the mud sticks it does tend to stuff up badly on it's feet of clay.
