Poll: Americans of all political stripes — except for Tea Partiers — see disaster if debt ceiling isn’t raised

Pat Cunningham

It’s my understanding that additional results of THIS POLL will be released later tonight show and will show that Americans generally find much more fault with Republicans than Democrats for the government shutdown:

With House Republicans set to meet with President Barack Obama to discuss raising the debt limit and ending the government shutdown, a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows that 63 percent of Americans believe refusing to raise the debt ceiling would be a real and serious problem.
