A total of 44 percent of Americans put more blame on Republicans in Congress for the government shutdown, compared to 35 percent who put more blame on President Barack Obama and fellow Democrats, according to a CBS News poll.

The poll found 17 percent blame both sides equally.

Meanwhile, 72 percent of Americans disapprove of shutting down the government over disagreement on the Affordable Care Act, and 25 percent approve.

Among Republicans, 48 percent approve, and 49 percent disapprove. Among tea partyers, 57 percent approve and 40 percent disapprove.

Among independents, 21 percent approve, while 76 percent disapprove.

The survey of 1,021 adults was conducted Oct. 1-2.

Separately, an American Action Forum poll of 18 congressional districts, conducted Sept. 25-26, found that 55 percent of voters support the GOP attempt to delay Obamacare's individual mandate by a year through the budget.
