National Survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters

Conducted January 15-16, 2020
By Rasmussen Reports



1*  One of the candidates for president has proposed going around Congress to begin cancelling $640 billion in student loan debt on her first day in the White House. Do you favor or oppose a government plan to cancel student debt for most borrowers?


2*  (Answered by 339 Likely Voters Who Support College Loan Forgiveness) Should the cancellation of student loan debt for most borrowers be funded by tax increases, or should it be offset with cuts in other areas of the federal budget? Or should it be a combination of the two?


3*  Should Congress' approval be required before any plan to cancel student loan debt is implemented?
