44% Say Cutting Inessential Services Would Prevent Debt Default

UTICA, New York - Nearly two-thirds of likely voters oppose Congress raising the debt ceiling, but 55 percent say the next Congress will vote to raise it despite the opposition. More than 80 percent believe that if the debt ceiling is not raised, the federal government would cut services and be able to avoid default on the debt.

Those results come from a Zogby Interactive poll of likely voters conducted from Nov. 12-15, 2010.

The most recent increase in the U.S. debt ceiling to $14.3 trillion was signed into law last February. A Congressional vote on raising it again is anticipated sometime early in the next Congressional session. Some newly elected Republican members have said they will oppose another increase.
