Another week, another successful poll in the books… The question of the week was “Do you typically carry a credit card balance?” and there were over 215 responses.
To be completely honest, I was a bit surprised by the results — the overwhelming majority of respondents either never carry a balance (61%), or do so only infrequently (17%). Given all that we hear about the debt load of the ‘typical’ American, I was expecting a lot more people to fall into the frequent/always categories. That being said, visitors to this site are most likely a highly non-random sample, and are probably don’t reflect the tendencies of the average American. Once again, you should also check out the comments, as there are some good thoughts there.
If you haven’t yet had a chance to participate in the credit card balance poll, please do so. And be sure to check back next week for the next poll in the series. As always, if you have any ideas for topics that you’d like to see covered, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
