Do Americans want their Rep. to support a balanced budget ammend?

US

The group Pass the Balanced Budget Amendment released a survey today showing that constituents are less likely to support their congressman if he were to vote against a balanced budget amendment. 57 percent would be less likely to support their congressman while 45 percent would be more likely to vote against him.

"We knew that the voters wanted real change in November, but these results clearly show that they are willing to support more change in 2012 if their representatives don't deliver on key issues like this. Congress has a limited opportunity to achieve results, and we are pushing them to vote for a balanced budged amendment to the Constitution by October 1, 2011, " Ken Blackwell, national chairman of Pass the BBA and former Ohio secretary of state, said in a statement.

Newly-elected Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) is an honorary national chairman.
