GALLUP: U.S. Debt Ceiling Increase Remains Unpopular With Americans. “Despite agreement among leaders of both sides of the political aisle in Washington that raising the U.S. debt ceiling is necessary, more Americans want their member of Congress to vote against such a bill than for it, 42% vs. 22%, while one-third are unsure. . . . A follow-up question finds Americans more sympathetic to the Republicans’ argument than Obama’s. Specifically, when asked to say which is their greater concern, 51% say raising the debt ceiling without plans for major future spending cuts concerns them more, while 32% are more concerned with the risk of a major economic crisis if Congress does not take action.”
