Polls Support Up or Down Vote

Here is how Gallup had the polls on the fili

Which comes closest to your view -- [ROTATED: you want to see the filibuster rule preserved and you do not want those judicial nominees confirmed, you want to see the filibuster rule preserved, but you would like to see the Senate have an up-or-down vote on those nominees, or you want to see the filibuster rules changed so that those judicial nominees are subject to an up-or-down vote]?


Option 1 Preserve filibuster, do not want vote (19%)
Option 2 Preserve filibuster, would like to see vote (34%)
Option 3 Want rules changed (35%)
No opinion (12%)

So, 69% want the rules changed (fili removed) or for it to stay but an up or down vote on each nominee. I don't recall hearing a whole lot of stats on this one from the MSM before today.

Well if the fili - bomb comes back out in the next few days lets see if the poll plays out in the articles and coverage of the MSM.
