Many people are in favour of taking steps to reduce the government deficit but they are less clear on where spending should be cut, a poll commissioned by the BBC suggests.
Six out of 10 of the 500 people asked if they were in favour of reducing the deficit said they were, in the poll by Globescan for BBC World Service.
