There's partisanship in views of the federal response, according to ABC, with Democrats less critical of the Democratic-led government. Nonetheless, even among Democrats 56 percent rate the federal response negatively. That rises to 74 percent of independents and 81 percent of Republicans.
By comparison, partisanship ran in precisely the opposite direction in views of the Katrina response under the Bush administration. In Katrina, just 41 percent of Republicans rated the response negatively, rising to 64 percent of independents and 79 percent of Democrats.
