SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A recently released University of Iowa Hawkeye Poll shows most Americans would support changes to the Social Security program to help balance the budget, according to a university press release.

Nearly nine out of 10 poll respondents supported at least one reform, and two-thirds supported at least two reforms.

The poll of 867 respondents was conducted by phone from April 4 to 11.

"Americans appear willing to compromise on some aspects of Social Security reform if the right proposals are put forth," said Fred Boehmke, a faculty adviser to the poll and an associate professor of political science.
