I want to auto assign a "default" role for everyone that registers for the site. Is there any way to do this by default in Drupal 7?


You can do this using Rules... just add the action "After saving a new user account" with the action "add user role." Rules gives you even more power if you want, to only add that role on certain conditions and more.

Also - I should mention - Drupal does auto-assign the "authenticated user" role to everyone who registers for the site - you can just make sure that the authenticated role has the permissions you want...
