Here are the results of our Debt Ceiling Poll.  Politics Plus Polls are not scientific, because those who respond are not balanced according to demographic categories.   Therefore, we do not accurately reflect the makeup of the US population.  Nevertheless, our polls are often both accurate and indicative of the nation’s view.  This time, however, only two of us got it right.


And here are your comments:

Harming Americans?

It’s what they do.

What can you expect? It’s in the Repubican DNA!

Actually right now I am sweating getting my last 1099 to file taxes before they freeze everything. I won’t starve, I have savings, but it could be an inconvenience. I know, first world problem.

They will have to posture and show their "strength" before they will pass it, in the meantime the rest of us will suffer.

I truly believe that the Republicans are so blinded by their ideology that they are incapable of learning from their past actions and mistakes.

I voted other but yes after they do more to brainwash the country. After all Tom Obama is the one who is "Alien from another country."

Of course they will have to hurt the country before they do anything even slightly positive.

I was one of the two people who voted correctly that Republicans would cave-in and pass a clean debt-ceiling.  This is an election year, and the Republican leadership remember what happened the last time they shut down the government.  Provoking another major public outcry, this close to an election,  would have worked at cross purposes to their highest goal, establishing a permanent, totalitarian Republican Reich.  As humiliating as the cave-in was, the alternative was even worse for them.

A new poll is up.  Don’t forget to vote.

  1. I voted that the Repuglicons would only vote to extend the debt in return for something BIG – presumably it is their Freudian complexes that keep them doing this!

  2. Oh rabbits – I should have mentioned that I am extra-ill and our weather isn't helping – I meant 'extend unemployment benefits' not debt – back to bed!  (Arrgh!).

  3. Oh well. I don't expect to always be right.

  4. Well, in a way I am glad to be wrong on this one. 

  5. Poor John Boehner, finally gets a set, and does the right thing, now the Repug Tea Baggers are demanding that he resign. I often wonder, Whose side are these idiots on. Certainly not the USA,s.

    Question . Will America ever get over its inherent xenophobia and Racism?.

  6. In this case, I am glad I was wrong.

  7. Like Edie, I am very glad I was wrong.  But I must admit that I am interested in seeing the spin from the Republicanus/Teabaggers.

  8. Thanks everyone.  It's not about being right or wrong.  It's about learning from the experience.

    Avril, thsat depends.  If we make progress anainst inequity, Republicans will have a harder time inspiring that hatred by teaching that people wor are different arethe cause of that inequity.

  9. I missed this poll but, I'm glad that it worked out… 😆
