Bad news for the GOP's Kamikaze Caucus today, as a new national poll from Quinnipiac University shows overwhelming opposition to shutting down the government over Planned Parenthood.

Of course, this doesn't mean they won't try to do it anyway.

Nearly seven in 10 Americans -- 69 percent -- oppose shutting down the government over funding for Planned Parenthood, according to the results of a new national Quinnipiac University poll released Monday.

Just 23 percent support closing the government over the dispute. Even among Republicans, a majority of 56 percent to 36 percent opposes a shutdown due to Planned Parenthood.
