Rasmussen: GOP to Blame If No Fiscal Cliff Deal Is Reached

By Todd Beamon

If Congress and President Barack Obama do not reach a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff, 44 percent of likely voters believe it will be the Republicans’ fault. The results are part a survey conducted by Rasmussen Reports and released Thursday.

Only 36 percent of the 1,000 likely voters surveyed on Wednesday said that Obama is to blame if no agreement is reached to prevent huge tax increases and $500 billion in automatic budget cuts from taking effect on Jan. 2.

However, most voters want to see a deal reached between the White House and Congress — with 62 percent responding that they would like the tax increases and spending cuts stopped before next week’s deadline.

Eighteen percent said they disagreed on whether the cuts and tax hikes should be stopped, while 20 percent said they were not sure, according to Rasmussen.
