Most Americans believe the federal government should extend a variety of tax cuts, including those implemented during the George W. Bush administration, a new poll reveals.

In a national telephone survey, 60 percent of likely voters said the tax cuts should be extended, Rasmussen Reports said.

Just 28 percent believe Congress and President Barack Obama should allow the tax cuts to expire, according to Rasmussen. Another 12 percent were undecided.

“There’s been a lot of talk around the so-called ‘fiscal cliff,’ the result of a potential combination of tax increases and automatic cuts in government spending scheduled to begin on Jan, 1,’’ pollster Scott Rasmussen said.

“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.’’

The survey of 1,000 voters was conducted Nov. 8-9 and has a 3 percent margin of error.
