" Jon McHenry, a Republican strategist, said: 'At some point he needs to decide if he is taking ownership of this or contracting it all to the Democratic congress.'
'This autumn will tell if his honeymoon is well and truly over. He has been more popular personally than many of his proposals were, but there is only so long you can continue that.'"

Jon McHenry in The Washington Times on the politics for Republicans of a government shutdown:
"The president has the microphone, and he generally has a sympathetic press that's going to echo what he says," said Jon McHenry, vice president of North Star Strategies, a Republican polling firm. "There's a lot of peril for Republicans in this." ... And while there is little individual risk for those conservative lawmakers in pushing a shutdown, Mr. McHenry said there is collective risk for the House GOP's majority if a public backlash hurts moderate Republicans in swing districts. "At some point you have to decide if you want to be a Republican in the minority," Mr. McHenry said. "Safe as your seat might be, that doesn't mean you that guaranteed a majority going forward. A lot of those folks haven't been in the minority. You can't stop Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi with 200 Republicans in the House and 40 Republicans in the Senate." ... Mr. McHenry said that although Mr. Obama's job-approval ratings are poor, and he isn't leading on the budget crisis, tea party conservatives are inadvertently strengthening his position. "He hasn't done anything to distinguish himself by trying to lead on this issue," Mr. McHenry said.

Jon McHenry's comments in US News and World Report on ObamaCare and a potential government shutdown:
On its own, GOP pollster Jon McHenry says repealing and dismantling Obamacare is a great issue that attracts the Republican base, a majority of independents and even a fraction of Democratic voters to the GOP ticket.
"Where we lose is where we link Obamacare to the CR," McHenry says, referring to the continuing resolution battle Congress is embroiled in.
Independents won't go for a government shutdown even if it would stop Obamacare in its tracks, he explains.
"It jeopardizes Republicans maintaining control of the House and even gaining control of the Senate, which they are in a position to do in 2014," McHenry says.

Mr. McHenry said his polling suggests that would be a mistake for the GOP. "What we're seeing in our polling and in the public polling is that Republicans are in fantastic shape when they're talking about Obamacare, and that includes with independents, right up until the point where you start talking about the government," he said.

Jon McHenry's comments in The Hill regarding Republican candidates and populism:
But others say these candidates are too focused on running against the party establishment at the expense of bringing new ideas or policy proposals to the debate.
"It sort of cracks me up that a Republican would try to get left of President Kennedy on the issue of a rising tide lifting all boats," said Jon McHenry, a Republican pollster with North Star Opinion Research.
"It's interesting to me to hear Cruz talk about how we have to reach out to minorities, whether its African-Americans or Hispanics, which is true, but then not to offer any solutions about what you would do with the immigration system," he added.
But McHenry said the message is likely to play well among conservative activists in Iowa, who "are probably also the people who have that populist strain."

Jon McHenry's comments in the Washington Post regarding Congress and the economy:
"When you've got Republicans saying government is doing too much and needs to get out of the way of business, and Democrats saying government needs to step in and do more to help people out, it becomes pretty hard to bridge that economic gap," said Jon McHenry, vice president of North Star Opinion Research, a Republican firm that polls for clients including Sen.

Jon McHenry's comments in The Hill regarding Republicans and the changing American electorate:
"We can argue back and forth about policies. But it's not possible to argue against the math of a changing electorate," said Republican consultant Jon McHenry, whose firm North Star Opinion Research numbers Sen.
...
We are not going to see people lining up to increase taxes," McHenry said.
On the immigration issue, however, McHenry was confident that those advocating change would soon carry the day.
"You'll see that, certainly by the next presidential election," he said.
