The Washington Post’s Wonkblog reports that a new poll from Public Policy Polling found:

  • 39% of Americans have an opinion about the Simpson-Bowles deficit reduction plan.
  • 25% also have an opinion on the Panetta-Burns plan.

Of course, there is no “Panetta-Burns” Plan.  But that didn’t stop people from expressing opinions about it. The survey results:

Panetta-Burns’ nonexistent policy proposals were supported by 8% and opposed by 17% of the voters surveyed.

Simpson-Bowles’ real policy proposals had stronger favorables, with 23% support and 16% opposition.
