According to a poll conducted by Lincoln Park Strategies and reported on Yahoo News:

“The findings are clear and bipartisan — Americans overwhelmingly support Disability Insurance,” said Stefan Hankin, President of Lincoln Park Strategies. “To cut to the chase, my recommendation to elected leaders in either party is that attacking SSDI is a mistake.”

Among the key findings of the poll:

  • 83% of voters  – including 75% of Republicans – agree it would be unfair to cut SSDI benefits to working Americans who have paid into SSDI
  • 80% of survey respondents support the SSDI benefits program
  • Only 8% of voters polled believe SSDI should be cut
  • 77% of those polled agree that Congress should focus on programs other than SSDI to make budget cuts
  • 73% support SSDI program after hearing allegations that the program is another government handout program
