I'm a little uncomfortable with that wording. It could be interpreted to mean that they think the feral goobermint isn't aggressive ENOUGH in meddling in the affairs of those of us who have jobs and create wealth.

Many poll results seem structured so that they can be twisted to mean the opposite of what they mean.

Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.

What is wrong with the other 30%? Are they stupid or what?

And that 70% can do nothing worthwhile to prevent America’s failure. America will never recover. The communists have changed so much it can never be reversed without riots and widespread destruction. Look at Europe and then look inward.

I want government that gets out of the way and allows free people in a free market and free society to overcome problems.

You're correct.

Unfortunately (as was shown in the 2012 POTUS election).

I had a nice vent with my mom - you know, where you both feel better afterwards, even though the country is in shambles.

Here’s the truth: media is complicit and if they talk against the dictat0r, they are ruined. Same for congressmen, same for anyone else, even those receiving purple hearts, and, even I believe, secret s3rvicemen and military leaders. Yep, that I believe to be true.

So, does 70% disapproval matter? Only when something can be done about it.

“to make progress”

Maybe people are beginning to wonder what they mean by “progress”? If there is a goal, a target, we are supposed to be making “progress” toward, what is it and where is that written down?

Forgot to say, and, so many in this country have been mis-educated they don’t even know who to blame in that 70%. We are being run by the Washington Mafia.

Exactly, this poll is difficult to figure the meaning. I have no doubt that some people are moving from a belief that government is increasingly less effective, but my own sense is that that movement is still small.

well, I don’t know if you could call this “exactly’ a government issue, but I bet its part of a plan. over at drudge there is a wsj article about the dangers of the coming storm. i’m open to being corrected, but 10 inches of snow and freezing temp? this is cause for hysteria? I really believe the plan is to make people brainwashed to believe any disruption needs government intervention.

It’s all because of “climate change”

We never had winter storms prior to 20 yrs ago, LOL.

Our government is being run by a bunch of brain dead Kommie Kollege Kiddies with phony diplomas and the dumbass Marxist “perfessors” who gave them to them. How could it NOT be screwed up. They’re all a bunch of incompetent clowns.

It’s a push poll, and therefore not to be believed.

How dare you bother those busy watching "Dancing with the Stars."

Bread and circuses will always keep the low information simple minded voters plenty busy.

Unfortunately, a majority of the 70% expect government to solve all problems ... including too many Republicans.
