(POLL) Debt ceiling: Most voters say they wouldn’t mind a govt. shutdown

The U.S. House of Representatives have passed a debt ceiling agreement and now the Senate must approve the compromise agreement to raise the federal debt ceiling limit.

However, a majority of voters say they would prefer a government shutdown to higher spending according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.

The national survey found that 38% of likely U.S. voters would rather have Congress avoid a partial government shutdown by authorizing government spending at a higher level.

However, 54% would prefer a partial government shutdown until Democrats and Republicans can agree to either cut spending or keep it at its current level.

The Rasmussen survey was conducted prior to President Joe Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announcing their compromise deal. 

The Senate must pass the debt ceiling bill and send it to President Biden’s desk for signature by June 5 to avoid a U.S. default, according to the Treasury Department.
