46% Expect GM To Fully Repay Bailout, 44% Don't
While both General Motors and Chrysler have repaid sizable portions of their federal government bailouts, fewer than half of Americans now believe either automaker will fully repay taxpayers for the money they received.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 46% of American Adults think it is at least somewhat likely GM will fully repay the bailout money, but nearly as many (44%) disagree. This includes 25% who feel it is Very Likely GM will repay all it owes and 20% who think that's Not At All Likely to occur. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
