The survey found that 26 percent have a favorable view of the Texas Republican, against 36 percent unfavorable. That makes 62 percent of the public that has an opinion on Cruz, up from 42 percent in June, when 24 percent had a favorable view of him against 18 percent unfavorable – a 16-point negative swing.

Lee has seen a 20-point negative swing in his favorability rating from the same poll in June, and now sits at 40 percent favorable and 51 percent unfavorable in Utah.

Lee and Cruz led the charge in provoking a government shutdown over the funding of ObamaCare. Both pushed House Republicans to withhold all government appropriations in an attempt to defund the president’s signature legislative achievement.

Some Republicans have since openly chastised the two freshman Tea Party favorites, questioning their strategy and arguing it was unrealistic to believe the Senate or White House would agree to defunding the healthcare law. Some in the GOP were also worried that their party would be blamed for the shutdown; a fear that has borne out in the polls.

Still, the shutdown has negatively affected nearly all lawmakers in Washington.
