The Center for Excellence in Polling surveyed likely voters nationwide to gauge their opinions on the food stamp program.


… of all likely voters support requiring able-bodied adults without young children who receive food stamps to participate in work training programs as a condition of eligibility for food stamps.

This includes broad support across party lines with 76 percent of Republicans, nearly seven in 10 independents, and a strong majority of Democrats—58 percent of Democrats support this requirement compared to only 28 percent who oppose it, a 30-point gap in support.
