Poll: Majority Worried About National Debt

One government topic always buried is our national debt. Media may ignore it,  but voters are not.

Here’s more from TheHill.com:

Voters are troubled about the national debt, according to a monthly survey by the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, which advocates for deficit and debt reduction.

June’s version of the “fiscal confidence index,” obtained by The Hill ahead of its Tuesday release, reports that 53 percent of voters think the country is on the wrong track in terms of the national debt, while just 31 percent believe it is on the right path.

Seventy-two percent said that addressing the debt should be among the government’s top three priorities, and 76 percent said that the president and Congress should spend more time on the issue.
