Hey Republicans. A funny thing happens when you hold America hostage. Your poll numbers tank at warp speed.
The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll found 74 percent of Americans disapproving of how congressional Republicans are handling the budget negotiations, up from 63 percent two weeks ago. Fifty-four percent said they "strongly" disapprove of the Republicans while 20 percent said they "somewhat" disapprove. Only 21 percent said they approve of the way Republicans have handled the talks.
But keep believing, GOP. The polls are probably just skewed.
