Poll: 76% Oppose Federal Bailout of Ailing Life Insurance Companies

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009


Add one more government bailout to the list opposed by most Americans.

Seventy-six percent (76%) of adults say “no” to using federal funds to bail out troubled life insurance companies, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

Just 12% favor the idea, and another 12% are not sure.

Investors (80%) are even more strongly opposed.

There’s little partisan disagreement on this either. Eighty-three percent (83%) of Republicans, 71% of Democrats and 77% of adults not affiliated with either party oppose a bailout for ailing life insurers.
