POLLING ANALYSIS: FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY RESONATES WITH INDEPENDENTS, OTHER KEY DEMOGRAPHICS
Arlington, Va. – Public Notice today released a comprehensive polling analysis memo showing bipartisan concern over debt and government spending, especially among Independent voters and middle-class families, key demographics in the presidential campaign. Public Notice has been polling regularly for the past year on the issues of government spending and the debt.
Public Notice Executive Director Gretchen Hamel issued the following statement regarding the polling analysis:
“As more Americans connect our national debt to the health of the overall economy and their personal financial situations, it’s no surprise that debt and government spending continues to be an area of steady and growing concern. Because this topic resonates so strongly among key groups like Independents and middle-class families, it is our view that the candidate who can win voter confidence on cutting the debt will win the election. And no matter who wins, the first order of business in Washington after the election should be to work together to avert this fiscal crisis.”
The polling indicates four key points for candidates to focus on as we enter the final countdown to Election Day:
• Government spending and the debt are top concerns and have been for the past year.
• Concern over debt and spending has grown over the past year.
• Voters make the connection between the debt and how it impacts the overall health of the economy and their own personal financial well-being.
• Voters don’t see higher taxes as a solution to our debt problem.
