A recent survey of of 610 adult homeowners shows 25 percent believe the government should assist those who can’t make their mortgage payments.
Just 5 percent of U.S. Homeowners admit to missing or being late on a mortgage payment in the last six months, but 93 percent have not missed or been late on a payment, up slightly from 91 percent in December.
5 percent think it is at least somewhat likely that they will miss or be late with a payment in the next six months, which is the lowest finding since Rasmussen Reports started regularly tracking the question in 2010, while 91 percent think it is unlikely that they’ll miss or be late with a payment.
These findings include 2 percent who are very likely to miss a mortgage payment and 61 percent who are not at all likely to do so.
58 percent of all American adults believe that if someone cannot afford to make increased mortgage payments that person should sell the home and find a less expensive one, down from 65 percent in December and the lowest finding since September, while 25 percent believes the government should assist those who cannot afford to make increased mortgage payments.
