If Americans seem less-than-outraged about the $85 billion in “sequestration” cuts this year, there’s a reason for that: Almost half don’t know enough to have an opinion, a new Gallup poll says.

The survey found that 49 percent of Americans “don’t now enough to say” whether they think the sequester is a good thing or a bad thing. That’s actually down from a month ago, when 55 percent said they didn’t have information to make a decision.


Of those who do understand the cuts, 18 percent say it’s a good thing and 31 percent say it’s a bad thing, the poll shows.
