WI Poll Shows Drop in Support for Bush Social Security Plan

By  | 

The phone survey of about 500 Wisconsinites shows 44 percent support the plan to allow workers to invest a portion of their Social Security taxes in private investment accounts. That support was 49 percent when the proposal was unveiled in January.

Opposition to the plan among those surveyed increased from 47 percent to 53 percent.

The poll is sponsored by The Capital Times and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and has a margin of error of about four percentage points.
