    Sequestration Poll Shows That Nearly 4 In 10 Americans Impacted By Cuts

    Nearly 4 in 10 Americans have felt the pain of automatic spending cuts, according to a poll released Friday by ABC News and The Washington Post.Most Americans across the political spectrum disapprove of the cuts. Fifty-nine percent of Democrats, 54 percent of Republicans and 58 percent of independents oppose sequestration.
    Cuts seem to be having more of an impact than in months past. A CBS News poll in early May found that only 27 percent of Americans were impacted by the cuts. AMarch ABC/Post poll found that cuts had only impacted 25 percent of respondents.

    Polls are complete rubbish. I get calls from pollsters and my answers are colored by my attitude at that moment, not by reality.

    Call me and I'll be happy to say that I don't have the vaguest notion how sequestration is affecting me. Is it affecting you? Is it affecting anybody here today?

    Now the administration is now boasting that the debt is shrinking (in growth, not the actual debt). So apparently it's a good thing, not a bad thing.

    Since you quote HuffPo, how about Fox to even things out.

    Oh yeah, the sequester is still going on. Funny how that republican hissy fit over raising taxes on the rich has been burried under a pile of other ****.

    Seems like bridge repair affected a few!

    Me, the FAA sequester has an impact even though air traffic control got its funding back.

    I thought the stimulus should have fixed that bridge but instad it's the sequester that didn't fix it.

    There must be a way to make Bush (or Clinton) responsible for this. I mean Obama has only ben president for a few months now, right?

    If there is no blame game, may I ask what this thread is about? I must have misunderstood the topic.

    I thought 10 in 10 Americans were affected. I don't get how 6 in 10 escaped unscathed.
