Winning

A majority of Americans give President Obama the winning hand in the fiscal cliff debate. But that doesn't mean they like the 11th hour deal struck by lawmakers. In a Pew Research Center survey released Jan. 7, 57 percent said Obama got more of what he wanted, but 52 percent said they will be hurt by the legislation, 44 percent said it will hurt the budget deficit and 46 percent said it will hurt the economy. (Photo: Marc Serota/Getty Images)
