Polling Reveals That Voters View the Federal Government as a Threat to America’s Founding Ideals

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A national survey conducted by Scott Rasmussen from June 16-18 reveals key insights about voters’ perceptions of America’s founding ideals and how the current federal government poses a threat to them.

Highlights from the survey are as follows:

  • 77 percent agree that the United States was founded on the ideals of freedom, equality, and self-governance.
  • When asked to choose whether more individual freedom or more government leads to more equality, 67 percent agreed that more individual freedom leads to more equality.
  • 58 percent agreed that the federal government, as it operates today, is a threat to America’s founding ideals of freedom, equality, and self-governance.

Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“Despite the Left aggressively pushing the noxious narrative that America was founded on hate and racism, the results from this survey make it clear that a majority of Americans know the truth about our country. America provides opportunities for its citizens that no other country in the world can match–these opportunities are based in our founding ideals of freedom, equality, and self-governance, three values that voters overwhelmingly and correctly believe still exist in America today.”

“The American Dream is still alive. In my latest book, America In Perspective, we defend what many Americans already seem to know intuitively–that we can safeguard the American Dream for the next generation by embracing self-governance, meritocracy, and our national ability to self-heal and self-correct.”

“Unfortunately, these ideals are being undermined by politicians and the ever-expanding bureaucratic state at any given moment. If Americans want to preserve our Founding values, which have guided us through the darkest moments in our history, it is imperative that we celebrate leaders who are unapologetic in their defense of individual liberty and the American Dream.”

(Methodology: This Counterpolling™ survey of 1,200 Registered Voters was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen on June 16-18, 2022. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, internet usage, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of Registered Voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.The margin of sampling error for the full sample is +/- 2.8 percentage points.)
