New AP-GFK Poll Shows Public Blaming GOP for Paralysis

After sorting through the responses to the new AP-GFK online poll, conducted Oct. 3-7, a couple of nuggets are worth highlighting. According to the AP report on the poll,

Overall, 62 percent mainly blamed Republicans for the shutdown. About half said Obama or the Democrats in Congress bear much responsibility.
…Fifty-two percent said Obama is not doing enough to cooperate with Republicans to end the shutdown; 63 percent say Republicans aren’t doing enough to cooperate with him.

Yet another indication that a healthy majority of Americans know who is responsible for paralysis in congress.
