A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 61% of Adults think the federal government has too much power and money. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Perhaps that's no surprise since 66% believe America is overtaxed.
Only 14% say the government has too little power and money, and 19% more feel they have about the right amount. These findings show little change from early April 2009.
An overwhelming 70% of Adults say the government does not spend taxpayer’s money wisely and fairly. Just 16% believe the government does spend this money correctly, while another 14% are not sure.
