Once again, a poll comes out near and dear to my heart that I cannot resist mentioning. It only validates what we already knew. Turns out, most people are really not stupid.
Most Reject Big Government But Expect Biden to Grow It Anyway
Rasmussen –– Tuesday, November 24, 2020
Most voters continue to view big government as a problem and don’t want it, but they strongly suspect that more government and higher taxes are on the way with Joe Biden in the White House.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 59% of Likely U.S. Voters agree with the late President Reagan’s inaugural declaration that “government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.” Just 27% disagree, while 14% are undecided.
This is the highest level of agreement with Reagan’s statement since Rasmussen Reports first asked this question in 2008
Most Voters Still See Government As A Problem
Rasmussen Thursday, December 13, 2018
President Ronald Reagan said in his first inaugural address in 1981 that “government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem,” and voters still agree.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 56% of Likely U.S. Voters agree with Reagan’s statement that government is the problem, while 30% disagree. Fourteen percent (14%) are not sure. Reagan’s name was not mentioned in the question.
So in conclusion:
If only about 30% want bigger government, then why in the world would we elect someone to grow and expand government? (or raise taxes) And they lecture us about democracy?
