Poll: GOP Taking a Pounding on Obstruction of Health-Care Reform

From Bloomberg:


Months of Republican attacks on President Barack Obama’s health-care proposals appear to have hurt the party, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.

And on the Republican measure of failure, directly from the Q-poll:

But Republicans get their lowest grades since Obama was elected on several measures:

   * Voters disapprove 64 - 25 percent of the way Republicans in Congress are doing their job, with 42 percent of Republican voters disapproving;

   * Only 29 percent think Republicans on Capitol Hill are acting in good faith;

   * Voters trust Obama more than Republicans 47 - 31 percent to handle health care;

   * Voters 53 - 25 percent have an unfavorable opinion of the Republican Party.

On bipartisanship here's a variation of the polling choice of words noted by Greg Sargent:
