Americans clearly agree with Republicans’ stance that the $14.3 debt ceiling shouldn’t be raised, according to a new poll published by The Hill
. Just 27 percent of likely voters favor boosting the debt limit, while 62 percent are opposed, the study shows.
Republicans and independents are particularly strong in their opposition. More than three-quarters of Republican voters – 77 percent – oppose an increase, and 64 percent of independents are opposed. In the Democratic Party too, more voters oppose a hike – 46 percent – than support one – 42 percent.
The poll also shows voters continue to be disappointed with Democrats’ 2009 economic stimulus package. Only 36 percent of voters say stimulus spending creates jobs, while 48 percent say it doesn’t.
