Most voters still prefer a smaller government with fewer services and lower taxes, than the alternative — big government.
A new Rasmussen Reports national survey finds 58% prefer a “smaller government with fewer services and lower taxes” juxtaposed to 32% who prefer a “more active government with more services and higher taxes.”
Voters were also asked about their take on what Republicans and Democrats in Congress prefer.
When it comes to Democrats, 62% of likely voters think they want bigger government and higher taxes. Another 24% say they want a smaller government.
When it comes to Republicans, only 22% think they want bigger government, while 63% say they want a smaller one with fewer taxes and services.
The national telephone and online survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted August 30 – September 2, 2018, by Rasmussen Reports. It has a sampling error of +/- 3% with a 95% Confidence Level.
