Knox Countians Favor Balanced Budget Amendment

By Focus Staff

This week’s Knoxville Focus poll asked voters, “over the past several years, much has been written and said concerning the size of the Federal debt.  Would you support a constitutional amendment requiring a balanced Federal budget?”

More than three-quarters of respondents said they do indeed support a constitutional amendment requiring a balanced budget for the Federal government.  The idea found its greatest support in the Eighth District with an astounding 97% of voters saying they favor a balanced budget for Washington.  The Second District followed with 84% of voters saying they would favor a constitutional amendment requiring the Federal government to have a balanced budget.  The Eighth District is East Knox County, while the Second District is completely inside the City of Knoxville.

The district least supportive of the idea of a constitutional amendment requiring a balanced Federal budget was the Fifth District, which is centered around the Town of Farragut.  Still, more than 69% of voters in the Fifth District supported the notion of a constitutional amendment requiring a balanced Federal budget.
