ABSTRACT

Voters Support Sweeping Action to Address the Economic Fallout of the Coronavirus Pandemic   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "[1] Of the twelve policies surveyed--including rent suspension, monthly cash payments, and the forgiveness of at least $10,000 in student debt--all enjoy at least a 30-percentage-point margin of support, with most policies netting even higher support. [2] The most popular proposal tested is the prohibition of debt collection, garnishing wages, and repossession during the pandemic. This policy is supported by a massive 71-point margin. [3] Support for all twelve proposals is bipartisan. All proposals enjoy at least plurality support from self-identified Republicans, with even progressive policies like student-debt forgiveness netting a 10-point margin of support."
