Heartland Monitor X: Americans Reject Debt

October 2011

This tenth survey in the Allstate / National Journal Heartland Monitor polling series comes after a summer of contentious battles over the federal debt ceiling and amidst renewed concerns about the global economy. It is therefore not surprising to see data that shows Americans to be pessimistic about the direction of the country and lukewarm about where the economy is headed over the next year.

Similarly, most Americans express at least some level of concern about their own economic well-being and their ability to make ends meet. On a household level, Americans indicate that they're making efforts to eliminate or reduce debt. On a national level, Americans believe that debt is weighing heavily on economic recovery.
