The fiscal cliff talks may be stalled, but out in the real world, things seem to be shifting in favor of Obama.
65% of Americans now support a tax increase on incomes over $250,000, according to a new Quinnipiac poll.
On top of that, 52% of Americans approve of how Obama's handling the fiscal cliff, according to Gallup – whereas only 27% are happy with how Republicans in Congress are dealing with it, according to Gallup.
When it comes to whom the public would blame, the numbers are virtually reversed. 53% would heap obloquy on Republicans, compared to 36% who'd blame the POTUS.
And in a blow to Norquist-pledged Republicans, 85% of the public have no time for his anti-tax pledge, while only 10% think it's the business.
