Rasmussen: 44% Say Government Tries to Do Too Much, 31% Not Enough


Forty-four percent (44%) of American adults say, generally speaking, the government tries to do too much, but 31% believe it doesn’t try to do enough.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 18% of Americans think the government attempts to do about the right amount of what the public wants.

Adults over the age of 40 are more skeptical of government action than those who are younger. African-Americans are twice as likely as whites to say the government does not try to do enough.

Sixty-six percent (66%) of Republicans and the plurality (47%) of adults not affiliated with either major political party say government tries to do too much, a view shared by just 19% of Democrats. Forty-seven percent (47%) of Democrats disagree and say it doesn’t try to do enough.
