Economics, not politics: poll on spending cuts

October 28, 2010

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.

    All the Federal Government of America needs is a partial bailout from somewhere (the World Bank) and the FED needs to raise interest rates because that is what ultimately encourages millionaires and billionaires to spend and invest their waves of money to create employment for non-college graduates living in America. President Obama is doing a great job following the advise of his economic advisors. The federal government needs to reduce wasteful spending–giving free things to people who aren’t drugless and functional. And making the U.S. territories the 51 state can help too.
    And does legalizing marriage for everyone and criminalizing the international mail-order bride business helps as well.

    All Bush tax cuts need to expire as well as cutting spending in all areas.
