CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll

Clinton, GOP both blamed
for continuing budget deadlock

CNN/USA-Today/Gallup Poll

Interviews with 1,000 adult Americans conducted December 15-18, 1995.

Forty-eight percent of the public thinks that President Clinton has acted more responsibly than the Republican leaders in Congress in the current budget negotiations, according to a new CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll. Just 34 percent think the GOP leaders have acted more responsibly than Clinton. But the latest government shutdown has been damaging to the public's view of both sides. Forty-nine percent of those responding said that they felt more negatively toward Clinton after the shutdown than before; 62 percent felt more negatively toward the GOP.
