Analysis: The longer the shutdown, the greater the risk for GOP
WASHINGTON (MCT) — Republicans are taking a big political risk if the government shutdown persists.
Polls are emphatic — people hate this shutdown. They blame Republicans more than Democrats. And Republicans remain divided about how to proceed, a schism that has already triggered some ugly partisan primary fights.
Republicans still have some important advantages, enough so that analysts predict they will hold onto their House of Representatives majority and have a decent shot to control the Senate. But those forecasts could change if the partial closings that began Tuesday drag on.
