WaPo-Pew poll

Washington (CNN) - A second national poll indicates more Americans would blame Congressional Republicans than President Barack Obama if negotiations to keep the country from falling off the "fiscal cliff" fail.

Check out that number: If there's no deal,  53% would blame Republicans. And according to the poll, 52% of independent voters would also say it was the GOP's fault, but only 21% would lay it on the president.

They got it right. After all, when you have conservatives like Senator Jim DeMint saying government doesn't need additional revenues, who else is there to blame but the GOP?
