Favorable minus Unfavorable
President Obama +6
Tea Party -26
GOP -29 (yep, that's a minus 29)
Interestingly, the President's approval rating has increased a couple of points, and also the favorable ratings of Obamacare has increased. The Republican pollster called it a boomerang effect.
By a 22-point margin (53 percent to 31 percent), the public blames the Republican Party more for the shutdown than the President – a wider margin of blame for the GOP than the party received during the poll during the last shutdown in 1995-96.
Just 24 percent of respondents have a favorable opinion about the GOP, and only 21 percent have a favorable view of the Tea Party, which are both at all-time lows in the history of poll.
