In this poll:

A new Washington Post-Kaiser Family Foundation poll finds majorities across party lines oppose cuts to Medicare and Social Security, but support shoots up when cuts are limited to the wealthy.

This Washington Post-Kaiser Family Foundation poll was conducted by telephone July 25 to August 5, 2012, among a random national sample of 3,130 adults, including users of both conventional and cellular phones. The results from the full survey have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus two percentage points; error margins are 3.5 points for the samples of 1,027 Democrats and 1,054 independents and four points for the sample of 846 Republicans. Sampling, data collection and tabulation by Social Science Research Solutions (SSRS) of Media, Pa.
