Voters Aren’t Keen on Either of Obama’s Paths Off the Fiscal Cliff
November 12, 2012 - 9:30 am
Rasmussen polled on whether to raise taxes or allow the Obama government’s massive sequestration cuts to happen. A majority opposes both.
Most voters believe Congress and the president should work to extend the tax cuts set to expire at the end of this year, but don’t think they should allow the automatic spending cuts to take effect at that time.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 60% of Likely Voters believe the government should extend the variety of tax cuts, including those implemented during the George W. Bush administration, past the end of the year. Just 28% believe Congress and the president should let those tax cuts expire. Another 12% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
