    Not according to ALL the polls. The Republicans started it. The created a crisis when there was none.

    Can you read polls?

    Why would we default since we would still have 60% of the budget coming in as tax revenue and only the 40% we borrow missing? Can you itemize the 60% of our budget you think is more important to spend the tax revenue on then interest payments so we default?

    We know who the media will blame.

    However, your question is falsely predicated. Failing to raise the debt ceiling will not put us in default. We could pay our debts without borrowing money.

    If you think the voters wont hold Democrats as accountable as they would Republicans, you are living in a fantasy world.

    Which, sadly you may be.
