The poll shows that 54 percent of voters say the deficit makes them feel worried, while 32 percent say they feel angry. Few -- 8 percent -- are okay with the new estimates that have the federal deficit growing to over $1.5 trillion dollars.
Furthermore, more voters -- 47 percent -- think President Obama's federal spending freeze proposal is just a gimmick that won't really help, while 37 percent, or almost four in 10, think it's an important step in reducing the deficit.
