Poll: Nearly Six Out of Ten Voters Oppose Hiking Debt Ceiling

by Katrina Trinko

Most voters don’t want to see the debt ceiling hiked yet again in a clean deal, according to a Fox News poll released this morning.

Fifty-eight percent of voters would vote against hiking the debt-ceiling if they were lawmakers, while 37 percent would vote for it. 

But there is an appetite for combing a debt-ceiling hike with spending reductions: 62 percent of voters want any debt-ceiling hike combined with significant spending cuts in a deal. Even 48 percent of Democrats would like to see a hike accompanied by cuts.
