Voters, Democrats, Republicans on tax breaks and the MID

According to a survey conducted on behalf of the National Association of Home Builders, 75 percent of Americans support the mortgage interest deduction — specifically, “believe it is appropriate and reasonable for the federal government to provide tax incentives to promote homeownership.”

The survey, done by two groups (one left, one right) found that the sentiment was, for the most part, shared across the aisle: 84 percent of Democrats and 71 percent of Republicans and independents support lower taxes to promote homeownership.

There are a lot more figures from the survey; check out the NAHB’s release.
