Americans say government is their biggest problem again


Gallup has been asking people about the biggest threat to their lives and livelihoods every month for some time.

For the past two years, a vast majority have said they view government as their greatest problem. See here.

When Gallup asked Americans what troubles them most and is the chief threat to our way of life, one issue is head and shoulders above all the others: the government.

When asked to choose between big government, big labor and big business, 69 % of those who were surveyed overwhelmingly named big government as the “biggest threat to America’s future.”

Nearly nine out of 10 Republicans say big government is the biggest threat, but 67 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats say so, too. (And remember, Democrats are largely government employees and aid recipients themselves!)
