Polling the Debt Ceiling

While it should come as no surprise that 70% of Republicans surveyed in a new Gallup poll says that Congress should not raise the debt ceiling, I am incredibly surprised by the number of independents who say the same thing – 46%.  Only 15% of them say the debt ceiling should be raised.  The other 40% replied with “don’t know.”

More over, looking at the Democrat tab, 26% of the President’s own party is against raising the debt limit.

The Gallup poll was conducted from May 5-8, 2011, with a sample of 1,018 adults.  The margin of error is +/- 4%
