Americans blame all sides for debt committee failure: poll | Reuters

(Reuters) – Americans blamed the failure of Washington’s debt “super committee” on Republican and Democratic lawmakers and President Barack Obama, although more than a third said it lowered their opinion of the president, according to Reuters/Ipsos poll results on Tuesday.

Eighteen percent blamed Republican lawmakers most for the committee’s failure to reach agreement on a plan to reduce the U.S. budget deficit and 13 percent blamed Obama most.

Only 7 percent primarily blamed Democratic lawmakers, according to the poll, conducted on Monday and Tuesday.

Nineteen percent blamed a combination of Democratic and Republican lawmakers and 22 percent blamed a mix of lawmakers from both parties and Obama.
