So, Republicans—Who's your Daddy? 

Somebody on the Republican side is leaking polls that show there's no support at all for the "nuclear option," that would deprive minorities of any power at all in the Senate:

A recent survey taken for Senate Republicans showed 37 percent support for the GOP plan to deny Democrats the ability to filibuster judicial nominees, while 51 percent oppose.

Additionally, the survey indicated only about 20 percent of Americans believe the Republican statement that Bush is the first president in history whose court appointees have been subjected to a filibuster, a tactic in which opponents can prevent a vote unless supporters gain 60 votes. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity, noting the survey data has not been made public.

So, if the Republicans go ahead with this, that means the extremists own them.

Republicans... Who's your Daddy?
