A new poll shows Americans blame Republicans in Congress more than President Barack Obama or congressional Democrats for the nation's fiscal cliff crisis.
The Reuters/Ipsos online poll of nearly 1,500 Americans shows 27 percent blame the Republicans, 16 percent blame Mr. Obama and 6 percent point to Democrats in Congress. Thirty-one percent blame all of them.
But 67 percent of those surveyed said the fiscal cliff crisis was not affecting their holiday spending.
The poll was conducted from December 23 to December 27.
