Washington (CNN) - In a sign of the political hangover congressional Republicans are suffering in the wake of the government shutdown, three-quarters of Americans in a new national poll say that most GOP members of Congress don't deserve to be re-elected.
A CNN/ORC International survey released Monday also found a majority saying that the Republicans' policies are too extreme. And according to the poll, Democrats have an 8-point advantage over the Republicans in an early indicator in the battle for control of Congress. But with more than a year to go until the 2014 midterm elections, there's plenty of time for these numbers to change.
This is great news for John McCain!
( old liberal-blog joke)
Agreed. But, not for the reason you or many like might think. Those that did not stand fast FIGHT to free us from this disastrous chain that will on a daily basis get heaver, should go!!!

As a Dem., I say Thank You Ted Cruz, et al.
There are 17 republican senators and 144 republican congressmen would should be tried for treason. Shutting down the government and defaulting on our debt at a cost of $26 billion to taxpayers is worse than anything al Qaeda could have done.
Just don't forget this folks – and don't let the Faux Noise machine get between you and the polls on November 4, 2014 when you vote these repubs OUT!
That makes sense to me. There are too many of them that think the country should only go their way and no way else. They failed to make the point as to what governement should and shouldn't do with a reasoned explanation.
Irresponsible Republicans have been willing to destroy our economy with their shameful $24 Billion shutdown...vote it OUT 2014.
I wish somebody would hurry up and expose Cruz as a Sith Lord.
If its bad news for the GOP, Ricky McDaniel and the rest of the Rightie Greek Chorus will chant " it's a lie, its a lie, its a lie, it's a lie".
Being conservative apparently means never having to admit you are wrong or sorry, but they are a wrong, sorry bunch.
Well I'm disappointed. This poll leaves me with the impression that there are still too many dangerous brain dead voters in this county. Hopefully, for the sake of us all, this is not the case.
totally useless poll. a poll of leftist democrats in california and new york has no meaning for a republican running for office in a red state. keep deceiving yourself with these meaningless polls looney leftists.
There's plenty of time for the numbers to get worse. The tea party bone-heads aren't going to change their stance. Boehner is a Pee Wee Herman clone, so we know he won't stand up to anyone. Cruz's popularity is only growing with the dumbed-down citizens. The right loves the phrase "train wreck". I wonder if they will use it to describe their own party?
Trying to cover-up the catastrophe of Obamacare with this story? Not going to work. The individual mandate should have been postponed for a year – as the Republicans tried to accomplish, but Obama "wouldn't negotiate", so here we are – the president with his signature legislation revealing its failure. The shutdown happened because the president wouldn't compromise to even postpone the law for the year. He's responsible for the shutdown – and for the incompetence of the health care law implementation. Who's he going to blame now? No one left to blame, but himself.
Now that the GOP has unnecessarily added another $24 billion to our national debt, maybe they could give even more tax cuts to the wealthy, and let the middle class and poor people pay for their shutdown stupidity.
Woman in California -Some of the 25% are made up of Birthers, baggers, bigots, and some billionaires; the remainder think Mittens killed bin Laden, saved the auto industry, and are WMD conspiracists.
Aaaaw, CNN moderators got they feefees hurt by someone pointing out two very blatant things:
1. 99.99% of the imbeciles in the MSM haven't the slightest clue what they're even talking about when it comes to these issues and watching them pretend to be sudden experts in IT/website development/the intertubez is a strange combination of nauseating and ridiculous. I mean, when you have Chuck Todd getting slapped down today for asking Carney "why don't you just add another server?" then you know they're just struggling to understand these issues themselves...let alone find new ways to manufacture more misinformation and controversy. Sorry, MSM, but "did you turn it off and then on again or maybe try removing the batteries and putting them back in?" just makes you look stupid.
2. The MSM is deliberately trying to narrow everyone's focus onto the website and is whitewashing that you can still sign up via phone and in person. One might think that with an important issue like this, the MSM might want to step in and remind people of that so they can avail themselves of the available insurance, etc., but no....far more important to actually get involved in helping problems exist and deepen instead. After all, it's more beneficial to the MSM for there to be bad enrollment numbers and a huge controversy. The MSM views massive enrollment as an end to the gravy train.
The Democrats do not deserve to be re-elected either. Everyone that is in the Senate, House or White House deserves to be FIRED!!
"she fainted shortly after she saw the actual cost of her 'free' healthcare. hope she has enough cash to cover that $5000 deductible!"
Nobody ever claimed it was "free," so you can jam that silly straw man canard where the sun don't shine.
but it is free to many. fully paid for by the government. tax credits will be used as a welfare system to redistribute the tax money from payers to free loaders.
" tax credits will be used as a welfare system to redistribute the tax money from payers to free loaders": That's one hell of an assumption you are making, but its only an assumption given the complete lack of proof you present, so its worthless. Once again, posting a lie as a fact. By the way, since you are on record as railing against welfare, does that mean you support ending government subsidies to the oil industry, since they clearly do not need them? By your reasoning, a goverment contract of any kind is a subsidy, since it uses tax payer dollars. How about we end any government funding for the military, or is that just plain silly? Your argument is not a serious argument, but a cotton candy fantasy: full of hot air, spun out with sugar and of no value whatsoever. Grow up.
Finally, the truth and nothing but the truth! Of course, this truth is normally subjective on news networks for about an 24 -72 hour news cycle! Soon, it will be back to being controversial just for creating controversy and holding uo Daryl Issa's false claims, assertions, and statements of fantasy as facts again! The rewind is coming folks, so hold your applause for truth, uncompromising insight and intelligencia of those polled! Now, the network is goig to give us a backlash for months, by punishing President Obama because rightwingers extremist on this network are going to give them a hissy fit!
WOW...I MEAN WOOOOW! You mean 25% still think they should keep their jobs? Unbelievable!
One might think that the MSM would consider it important and valuable and actually doing its job to report on what is actually out there, what the ACA actually is, what it has actually set up, what changes actually occurred and kicked in earlier this month, what is available and what methods for signing up are currently working and how to go about it...all objective information that the MSM SHOULD be helping make widely available in order to serve its function. Instead, the MSM is myopically focused on one aspect of it all...total and complete tunnel vision...because that's the most sensational part, since it's having trouble. Why help get information about signing up out to the public or further their understanding of the law when you can contribute to exactly the opposite and thereby perpetuate the problems that make for grand controversy reporting, right CNN?
Ah, freedom, keep trying to convince yourself that what you say is true. Still do not understand how it is all fault of the POTUS (unless you live on alpha centauri). No bill ever hit his desk, and he never vetoed anything. The fact is it could not get through the House, just as it has not gotten through the house 40 some times before at a cost of additional millions if not by now additional billions. Add that too the current blowing of 24 billion. You really have no case, so just stand back, shake your little fists, and scream at the heavens BENGHAZZZZZZZZIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!! Oh and if you try reaaaaally hard you might hold President Obama to two terms.
I totally agree , however that does apply to just as many Democrats.
Clean house and send some credible and fresh minds to Washington , public servants that actually want to work for the country and it's people.
Limit the obscene amounts of money during elections , that way you might actually get somebody who is good and has not been bought and spends his time in Washington repaying the big donors.
Hey "just sayin-just askin-freedom-rick McDaniel-Fair is Fair", etc. Are you being paid by Roger Ailes? It's hard to believe anyone can be as out of touch as Faux "News".
