Senator Ted Cruz Working Against Public Mood

Leave it to Senator Ted Cruz to try and force a square peg into a round hole.

On the one hand Cruz plans to fight in the coming days and weeks for a showdown in Congress over Planned Parenthood and the budget.  He thinks this a sure-fire way to showcase his conservative fighting spirit to the soon to be voting base of the party.

But on the other hand a new Quinnipiac poll finds 69% of Americans oppose shutting down the government over funding for Planned Parenthood.  Just 23% support closing the government over the dispute. Even among Republicans, 56% oppose a shutdown due to Planned Parenthood.

What is a three-thumbed politician named Cruz to do?
