Washington Post Poll on the Fiscal Cliff

13 Nov

Let’s see what kind of compromise we’ll get from the people that just lost the election by 126 electoral votes.

And, apparently, have convinced a fair majority of the country that they’re the problem.

Boehner and McConnell have their work cut out for them. They’ll be herding some tea-bagger cats,…… not easy.

Post-Pew poll: Fiscal cliff negotiations predicted to fail

Most Americans doubt President Obama and congressional Republicans will avoid hurtling over the fiscal cliff before January 1, 2013, according to a new Washington PostPew Research Center poll.

By 51 to 38 percent, more predict Obama and Republicans will not reach an agreement in time, and the survey finds widespread anxiety over the consequences of such a failure.

More than six in 10 believe a missed deadline would have an overall negative impact on the U.S. economy, and about the same number anticipate a blow to their personal finances, including 74 percent of those with incomes of at least $100,000. Without a deal, taxes will jump for nine in 10 Americans, with the steepest hikes for top income brackets.
