June 9, 2023: Fifty-seven percent (57%) of voters say that now a debt ceiling agreement has been reached, Congress should make further cuts in government spending as they continue the federal budget process. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that just 22% say they should not.
The survey also found that 57% believe cutting the growth of federal spending is good for the economy, including 22% who think it is very good. Twenty-four percent (24%) believe it is bad for the economy, and 19% are not sure.
The survey of 1,000 Registered Voters was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen on May 30-31, 2023. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, internet usage, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of registered voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
The margin of sampling error for the full sample is +/- 3.1 percentage points.
