This poll doesn't surprise me because I've been getting tea party calls all week opposing a CR that doesn't defund what they want defunded (mostly health care reform, but also Planned Parenthood). In addition, a number of Republican figures including Reps. Mike Pence, Michelle Bachmann, Jim Jordan, and Sens. Marco Rubio, Mike Lee, Jim DeMint, and Rand Paul have all come out against additional short term CRs. We haven't even got to the debt ceiling debate yet and these legislators and some of their more active constituents are already supporting a government shutdown.
