The National Debt

From the Peter G. Peterson Foundation:

As we enter the new year and an era of divided government, the vast majority of U.S. voters want their leaders to work together on our nation’s unsustainable national debt. With a Democratic administration and Senate, and Republicans controlling the House, voters believe their leaders have a responsibility to find bipartisan solutions to our fiscal and economic future.

Key findings from the polling, which was conducted by a bipartisan team of firms – Global Strategy Group and North Star Opinion Research – include:

  • 90% of voters urge Congress members to put election politics aside and embrace a bipartisan approach to reducing the national debt;
  • 89% agree that lawmakers in a divided government have the responsibility to work together to address the debt; and
  • Three-in-four voters believe that the debt should not be used as a partisan issue.
