A new poll conducted by political strategist Doug Schoen found overwhelming support for the revamped Simpson-Bowles deficit reduction proposal, A Bipartisan Path Forward to Securing America's Future.  80 percent of Americans favor the plan, which combines spending cuts, tax reform, and targeted changes to entitlement programs.  Schoen argued in a Forbes op-ed that the poll results should encourage policymakers to use "Securing America's Future" as a framework for a comprehensive deficit reduction compromise.
