NBC and the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) conducted a poll to see who supports what from the Deficit Commission’s preliminary list of recommendations.

Nearly half of Republicans called it a “bad idea”. Only one-third of Democrats saw it that way.
Republicans have been hot to trot on making cuts … but if they don’t like what the commission proposed and they can’t name any specific cuts that they would make on their own … then what is the plan?
