Democracy Corps surveyed 1,000 likely 2012 voters from Feb. 7-9, testing voters’ responses to the Republican proposal to cut $32 billion from the federal budget.
The poll tested messages on both sides of the debate and recorded responses to itemized cuts. The American people know that this is a debate about principles and priorities. The results are clear: these are the wrong priorities at the wrong time. The poll shows that there is little appetite for these cuts, but it is imperative that Democrats’ get the message right—right now. The poll reveals how progressives can win this debate, but they must start now and come out swinging.
