Poll shows discontentment with Republican party

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

A new poll by Western New England University Polling Institute showed a majority of residents in Massachusetts felt Republican lawmakers were mostly to blame for the partial government shutdown. The report was released Wednesday.

Results also showed 80 percent of residents in the Bay State disapproved of the job the GOP was doing in Congress. Nearly half, 49 percent of those surveyed, also disapproved of Democratic legislators.

Tim Vercellotti, director of the polling institute, said their original intent was to gauge the feeling of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
