While browsing the RasmussenReports website, I have discovered this August 19th poll on the subject of US military spending. The results are illuminating.
43% of all Americans believe the US does not spend enough on defense, and another 30% believe the US spends the right amount. Only 23% say the US spends too much and should cut its military expenditures.
This means 73% of Americans believe the US either spends the right amount or too little on defense.
In other words, 73% of Americans – nearly three fourths of the electorate – OPPOSE defense spending cuts.
Once again, the blatant lies of the advocates of defense cuts have been disproven.
