Americans Fine with Modest Budget Deal

A new McClatchy-Marist Poll finds that a congressional budget deal expected this week "might not be a grand bargain to solve the country's long term fiscal woes, but it is largely what Americans want."

"The likely deal would ease the automatic spending cuts known as the sequester, with more defense and domestic spending, no major cuts in popular programs and no big tax increases - all what majorities of American voters prefer, according to the survey."

That said, 68% "do not think Obama and Congress could reach a budget deal before government funding runs out in mid-January, despite reports that a congressional agreement could come this week."
