As top Republicans and Democrats continue to haggle over the debt ceiling, new poll numbers suggest the White House is winning the PR war.
The CBS News survey found a whopping 71% disapprove of the way Congressional Republicans have been handling the issue and only 21% approve of their approach. Within the GOP party itself, 51% disapprove of the Republican response (or lack there of) to the crisis.
For the Dems in Congress, the disapproval rating was slightly better at 58% and an approval rating of 31%. Still, these aren’t the kind of numbers that would win anyone a popularity contest.
President Obama came out the best, with 48 percent disapproval rating and 43 approval.
