Democracy Corps, a project of political consultants James Carville and Stan Greenberg, released a poll this week that shows voters strongly opposed to budget cuts being proposed by House Republicans. The chart below shows opposition to these cuts when voters learn about the impact on children, youth, women, and families.
How much more simple can this be? Voters do support the idea of cutting $32 billion from the federal budget in the abstract (50% favor-33% oppose). However, when they learn about specific cuts being proposed, support collapses. 50% are opposed (a gain of 17 points) with only 43% in favor. Voters need to know what the House Republican leadership wants to do. It is the only way to stop these stupid and short-sighted cuts.Share on Facebook
