GOP voters divided over entitlement cuts
A Pew Research Center survey released Thursday found that Republican voters might not be as keen to cut entitlement benefits as Republican lawmakers have been in ongoing budget talks.

According to the survey, conducted nationally in June, 50 percent of Republicans say that maintaining benefits is more important than deficit reduction. This half of potential Republican voters stands in stark contrast to many Republican lawmakers who have prioritized cutting the budget deficit over preserving any benefit program.
