How the latest Gallup Poll must hurt in the White House. The American people believe government is trying to do too much. Gee, that wasn’t the sort of “change” the Prez & Co. wanted!
Americans are more likely today than in the recent past to believe that government is taking on too much responsibility for solving the nation’s problems and is over-regulating business. New Gallup data show that 57% of Americans say the government is trying to do too many things that should be left to businesses and individuals, and 45% say there is too much government regulation of business. Both reflect the highest such readings in more than a decade.
With results like this, moderate Democratic congressmen might want to think once, twice, and three times before voting to nationalize the health care system.
