Voters lack confidence politicos in either party will make needed spending cuts 

Nearly three out of four likely voters think they are more supportive than politicians in either party of making the kind of deep federal spending cuts that are required to restore economic growth and get the government back on a sound financial footing, according to Rasmussen Reports.

"A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 70% of Likely U.S. Voters think voters are more willing to make the hard choices needed to reduce federal spending than elected politicians are," Rasmussen said.

"Just 17% say the politicians are more willing to make the tough spending cut decisions, while 13% more are undecided."

Not surprisingly, Rasmussen found a big majority of the Political Class has more confidence in the professional politicians:

"Sixty percent (60%) of Political Class voters say elected politicians are more willing to make hard budget cutting choices, but 79% of those in the Mainstream feel otherwise and see voters as more willing to do it," Rasmussen said.

The news is not good for either major party, as Rasmussen said 55 percent of his respondents doubt President Obama's proposed $3.7 trillion 2012 budget includes enough cuts.
