A recent poll found 64 percent of Americans say they have an unfavorable view of the GOP -- an all time high.
56 percent have an unfavorable view of the Tea Party movement -- another record high.
John Philo with the local Tea Party reacts.
"I know the traditional media paper has to be slanted toward blaming the Republcian party for the shutdown. But quite honestly the democrats are just as guilty. Harry Reid and even President Obama refused to negotiate with Republicans in the House of Representatives."
The Democratic Party's 43 percent unfavorabe ratings are basically unchanged from before the government shutdown.
