Democrats say d’oh! 68% of likely voters favor smaller government, lower taxes
This isn’t what Barack Obama promised them. As if the polling on individual Senate, House, governor and state house races, the nation’s whole damn philosophy of government is turning away from the Democrats.
Rasmussen reports the depressing Democrat details:
Sixty-eight percent (68%) of U.S. voters prefer a smaller government with fewer services and lower taxes to a more active one that offers more services and higher taxes. That’s the second highest finding in Rasmussen Reports surveying on the question since November 2006, exceeded only by a 70% finding in August of last year.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 24% of voters prefer a more active government with more services and higher taxes. Only 19% felt that way in August 2009 as voters stormed congressional town hall meetings across the country to complain about pending health care legislation, the bailouts of the auto and financial industry and the $787-billion economic stimulus plan.
Just two months ago, 63% favored a smaller government, while 26% opted for a more active one.
