Heritage Weblog: Social Security Polls

The Heritage Foundation’s Heritage Policy Weblog has posted results of several recent polls on Social Security reform, and provides an analysis that, Heritage says, “illustrate(s) that how pollsters ask questions about reform can make a big difference.”

Among other results they cite, 82 percent of Americans, according to Gallup, say it is “very important” or “extremely important” for “Congress and the President to deal with Social Security in the next year.”

Many of the polls reviewed examine public opinion toward private retirement accounts/partial privatization of Social Security.

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
