Majority Of Americans Say Government Too Involved

Majority of Americans in new poll says government doing too much

A majority of Americans say that the government is doing too much, according to a Gallup poll released Thursday.

Fifty-two percent of respondents said government is doing too many things that should be left to individuals and businesses, while 43 percent said the government should do more to solve the country’s problems.

The findings come in contrast to when Gallup conducted the poll last year and found that 54 percent of Americans wanted the government to have a more active role in solving the nation’s problems. That poll came amid economic struggles resulting from the coronavirus pandemic and racial injustice issues.

Perhaps that explains the election. And, now, these people are realizing that too much government is a bad thing, especially when it originates from the Central Government in isolated Washington, it’s own little world of dis-reality.

Fifty-seven percent of Independents say the government is doing too much, compared to 38 percent who held the same opinion last year. A separate thirty-eight percent said the government should be doing more, down 18 points from the 56 percent who held that view last year.

That does not bode well for the mid-terms. Perhaps they should have thought of this with their brains during the 2020 election season, rather than with their hearts

The poll also found that 18 percent of Democrats say the government is trying to do too many things, and 78 percent said the government should be doing more. Eighty percent of Republicans held that the government is trying to do too many things, while 15 percent said the government should be doing more.

Who are these 15% of Republicans who want more Government?

Given the choice, 50 percent of respondents said they preferred less services and reduced taxes, while 19 percent said they wanted more services and taxes. A separate 29 percent preferred keeping government services and taxes the way they are now.

You know, government could do more with less, if they spent it wisely. But, should focus more on core missions.
