Americans disapprove of both sides in the government’s latest budget standoff, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Twenty-six percent approve of congressional Republicans’ handling of budget negotiations, while 34 percent approve of their Democratic counterparts, and 41 percent approve of Obama’s approach to the situation.

In each case, more respondents say they "disapprove" of how Republicans, Democrats, and Obama are handling the matter; 27 percent of Americans disapprove of all three, according to poll results.

The poll also found that only about a third of independents — 34 percent — approve of Obama’s work on the budget, but an even smaller number, 21 percent, support congressional Republicans.

Congressional Democrats fall somewhere in between at 27 percent, according to the poll.
