Peterson Foundation: Is national debt on the right track?

Every month the Peterson Foundation Economic Monitor asks likely voters whether they think the national debt is on the right track. I am not sure what it means for debt to be on the right or wrong track, but the results are interesting.

In the survey results released today, 65% believe that management of the national debt is on the wrong track. By party affiliation, 88% of Democrats, 72% of independents, and 37% of Republicans. The biggest concern about negative debt effects is the threat to programs like Social Security and Medicare (31%).
