47% blame GOP for lack of $2,000 checks, 32% blame Dems

Nearly half of respondents to a newly released poll blamed Republican lawmakers and Senat Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for Congress’ inability to agree on $2,000 stimulus checks.

The new poll, published Friday by the left-leaning think tank Data for Progress, revealed that 47% of 1,166 people surveyed responded that “Republicans in Congress and Senator Mitch McConnell” were to blame for the delay in reaching a consensus on the checks.

In comparison, 32% said it was “Democrats in Congress and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.” Just 15% of respondents said President Donald Trump was to blame.
