Survey of 1,000 Adults
Conducted November 2-3, 2013
By Rasmussen Reports
1* How closely have you followed recent news reports about Detroit?
2* Detroit has officially filed for bankruptcy, claiming over $18 billion in debts it cannot pay. If a city is unable to pay its financial obligations, should it be allowed to file for bankruptcy?
3* How likely is it that more major cities will file for bankruptcy in the near future?
4* If Detroit is allowed to go into bankruptcy, its retired employees are expected to have their pensions reduced significantly. Should the federal government bail out Detroit to make sure these pensions are paid in full?
