66% Say Spending Cuts Should be Considered in All Government Programs

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Voters continue to support across-the-board federal spending cuts to help solve the federal budget crisis.  A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 66% of Likely U.S. Voters think that, as the nation searches for solutions to the federal budget crisis, thoughtful spending cuts should be considered in every program of the federal government.

That's consistent with previous surveying but is the highest level of support since Rasmussen Reports first asked the question in August 2011. Twenty percent (20%) disagree and do not think spending cuts should be considered in all programs. Another 14% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
