GOP, Boehner take shutdown hit in new CNN poll

Just more than half the public says that it's bad for the country that the GOP controls the House of Representatives, according to a new national poll conducted after the end of the partial government shutdown.

And the CNN/ORC International survey also indicates that more than six in 10 Americans say that Speaker of the House John Boehner should be replaced.

The poll was conducted Friday through Sunday, just after the end of the 16-day partial federal government shutdown that was caused in part by a push by House conservatives to try and dismantle the health care law, which is President Barack Obama's signature domestic achievement.

    Oh we all knew this, its worse than they think, they better get busy on voter suppression laws, or its bye bye. I can only imagine how ludicrous this will get, what they come up with, their excuses get more sorry every time, must be pretty tough being a Republican right about now.

    John should have backed Ted American hero–even Obama would have benefited if he had only delayed Obamacare for one year as Cruz had requested. Obama and Boehner's stubbornness has cost the American people millions and has ruined their healthcare.

    CNN lies........the people of America need to wake up to the fact CNN is entirely partisna, and is controlled entirely by Obama, and the traitors to America, of the Democratic Party.

    CNN is nothing but an Obama propagandist organization, lying to the people to give Obama an advantage......and indeed allowing Obama to become a dictator in America.
