Economics, not politics: poll on spending cuts
In the run up to Election Day, we’re swapping our usual Tuesday “Public Pulse” post with a daily update of the latest polls. But unlike most, we won’t focus on the partisan horse race. Instead we’ll do what we’ve been doing all year: focus on the issues.
Why? Because we believe this 2010 election is about economics, not politics.
According to Rasmussen, 83% of Americans think it is at least somewhat likely that the federal government will have to make cuts in government spending over the next 10 years. Only 10% think it’s unlikely.
And on the “stimulus,” a poll released this week from the Politico and George Washington University, found that while 35% of registered voters believe it is working, 59% say it is not.
