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

Conducted September 23 and 26, 2021
By Rasmussen Reports


1* How closely have you followed news stories about raising the federal government's debt ceiling?



2* The U.S. national debt is now around $28 trillion dollars and Congress wants to raise the current debt ceiling that limits additional borrowing by the federal government. Do you support or oppose raising the debt ceiling?



3* Congress is currently deadlocked over a $3.5 trillion spending bill. Do you support or oppose passage of this bill?



4* Do you agree or disagree with this statement: “The radical left … want to use this terrible but temporary pandemic as a Trojan horse for permanent socialism. And President Biden, who ran as a unifying moderate, is either powerless to stop them or does not wish to”?
