    In Blind Poll, Republicans Choose Progressive Budget Solutions Over Their Own Party's

     

    "When the Business Insider polled registered voters and asked for their preferences among three Congressional plans floated to avoid the looming "sequestration" cuts in Washington, they found that when stripped of their partisan labels, the policies most favorable to the majority were those offered by the progressive wing of the Democratic caucus.

    The poll found that in addition to beating the House Republican plan and the Senate Democrat's plan overall, "more than half of respondents supported compared to sequestration and a fifth of respondents were opposed."

    To describe the poll's approach, the Insider explains: "Surveys have found that asking people about just titles of plans or telling people who proposed policy, changes the results, so the point of this poll was to see what people thought of the plans when they were fully explained, but also stripped of partisan labels."

    In fact, without the proper labels, the poll found that a majority of Republican respondents rejected the official plan put forward by the House GOP leadership."
