Budget deal boosts Obama’s standing, applauded by Democrats and Independents – CNN Poll

A CNN/Opinion Research Poll shows some good signs for the Obama Administration in its handling of the recent government shutdown scare. Republicans pushed for policy riders such as: defunding of Planned Parenthood, NPR, PBS, and attempted to lower the Pell Grant award amount among other things. A deal was reached late at night with each side obviously worn from the exchange.

Overall, Republicans in the House took a beating as far as the public’s opinion of the recent budget negotiations. A large majority supported to continue funding of Planned Parenthood and the EPA despite the GOP’s efforts to persuade public opinion away from these. A majority also supported the idea of continuing funding of 2010’s healthcare reform law.
