Rasmussen Reports reports:
Voters remain closely divided over whether Congress and the president should stop the automatic spending cuts scheduled to kick in on Friday, but Democrats are more worried than Republicans and unaffiliated voters. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 40% of Likely U.S. Voters now think President Obama and Congress should stop the so-called sequester spending cuts from going into effect on March 1. Thirty-two percent (32%) disagree and don’t think they should stop the automatic cuts. Twenty-eight percent (28%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on February 22-23, 2013 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
