Record High in U.S. Say Big Government Greatest Threat
Now 72% say it is greater threat than big business or big labor
PRINCETON, NJ -- Seventy-two percent of Americans say big government is a greater threat to the U.S. in the future than is big business or big labor, a record high in the nearly 50-year history of this question. The prior high for big government was 65% in 1999 and 2000. Big government has always topped big business and big labor, including in the initial asking in 1965, but just 35% named it at that time.

This is a winning issue.
The Republican Party doesn’t have any interest in smaller government as far I can tell.

They are only interested PRIOR to being elected.
“The Republican Party doesnt have any interest in smaller government as far I can tell.”
Also, did you notice how the perception of big government as a threat tends to track the size of government? No inverse relationship there!
The Tea Party does do this, the GOP will never focus on it, because they ARE those things too, just to a little bit lesser degree.
Also, no crap big government should be seen as a threat. What other entity on the face of this earth has caused more man made death,war and destruction than big out of control governments?
The left always rambles on about religion causing most of the war and conflict in the world, and it does to a degree. Nothing compares to the outright destruction and murder committed by government though..from communism to fascism.
I agree. Focus on getting the government out of our lives, and stand back and watch the votes roll in!
The Republican Party in the House voted to fund ObamaCare for 2 more years, raises taxes and spending. They have done little to nothing about the IRS and NSA, although one or two members might squawk here and there and Issa holds a completely pointless hearing.
These might be winning issues if the Republican Party wasn’t holding hands with the Democrats on them.
Death by Government.
For those that need a support for this position.
FU to Dems
FU to Big Government
FU to RINO’s
(those remaining may help to solve the problems created by the aforementioned groups)
The RINOs in charge campaign as conservatives but govern as the Party of Greed. They're all for government control of things as long as it all filters through corporations and they get their profits. ObamaCare has made that abundantly clear.
_we_the_people_ ? have been somehow measured to not trust USG and yet more of we people vote and encourage USG to take from those that produce and give it to them.
Welcome to the asylum of our era.
Corrupt controlling government at all levels, is the direct cause of nearly every single problem in America today...
Somebody needs to tell Barack Lenin over in the White House; he clearly didn’t get the memo.
What ever Karl Rove says
The invasion began years ago, a GUbamint overrun by bureaucrats and career criminals uhhh Representatives, thousands of unelected officials, enough regulatory agencies to smother growth regardless of the faulty sciences applied or fictitious studies passed off as solid science and research.
From our institutions of higher learning all the way down to the pre-kindergarden crowd, they got ya covered, like a wet rag with fantasy and fiction passed off as history, and parents no longer needed to teach their kids right from wrong.
Oh yeah, it began a long time ago,,
The Affirmative action hires are now more than double the percentage of general population.
What I find very interesting is how the Dems and obama,who have historically relied on polls when making policy, are ignoring these trends.
They have resorted to PR all the time in order to convince the public via their media sycophants that everything is great.
>>This is what Republicans<<
If you’ve not noticed...the republicans are part of the problem.
Enemy #1: Barry Barack Hussein Soetoro Obama!
Enemy #2: Central Socialist Government of the USA!
