Despite being presented by a headline that lays blame for the government shutdown squarely at the feet of the GOP, a new AP poll reveals that Americans see both parties as responsible, as well as the president himself.

The poll finds that Fifty-two percent of Americans believe Obama is not doing enough to cooperate with Republicans to end the shutdown. It also reveals that 49% blame Obama, with 49% ALSO blaming congressional Democrats for the shutdown.

The poll also places Obama’s approval rating at just 37%, with 53% unhappy with his performance.
A massive 83% said they disapprove of Congress, with only 5% approving of the job representatives are doing.

Despite these facts, the AP chose to lead with the headline Poll: GOP Gets The Blame In Shutdown.

The survey notes that 63% say Republicans aren’t doing enough to reverse the shutdown, but the figures clearly show that overall, Americans are blaming both parties for the mess the country is in, with 68% saying it is a major problem.
