Just over half of U.S. voters are still skeptical that their elected officials will get the federal budget under control before it’s too late.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 51% of Likely Voters believe the federal government will go bankrupt and be unable to pay its debt before the federal budget is balanced. Thirty-six percent (36%) disagree and think it’s more likely that the federal budget will be balanced first. Thirteen percent (13%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
