Just saw new ABC/Washington Post poll. The headline is 87 percent of the country is worried about the federal budget deficit.

A whopping 59 percent say they are "very concerned" — up 10 points in two months. 

Who is most worried? Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, who are less likely to support President Barack Obama’s $787-billion stimulus plan. Democrats are flat.

More HERE from ABC’s polling director Gary Langer.
