This is depressing:
If measures are needed to be put in place to reduce the deficit, which best fits your view?
Mainly tax rises: 47% (+17)
Mainly spending cuts: 27% (-25)

What's depressing is that the wrong questions were asked.
It does not seem as if the option to 'spend to stimulate the economy to get us out of the crisis' was on the agenda.
And nor was 'The deficit does not matter: jobs do'.
That's what's really depressing: that as yet we have not even got the required narrative before the public so that they can choose it.
