Poll: Will the prolonged pay freeze change your vote?


An August Rasmussen Reports poll indicated that government employees favor President Obama over Republican rival Mitt Romney in the upcoming November election. But that was before Obama announced he is extending the pay freeze for federal employees until Congress passes a budget.

Readers have indicated in our comment section that news of the extended pay freeze is making their decision more difficult.  “Who to vote for. The one screwing me now, or the one who will screw us later.....” one reader asked.

Does the pay freeze extension change your view of the president enough to affect how you might vote this fall?
