Majority Of Americans: Government Too Powerful

05.28.13 01:44 PM

According to Gallup polling results, since 2005 at least half of all Americans have believed that the Nationís government is far too powerful.

As the recent gamut of government scandals continues to ride the headlines, the pooling agency reports that 54 percent of Americans believe that the Federal government has too much power. The number is only slightly higher than the result from the same poll last year, and is actually lower than the number of Americans worried about government power in 2010 and 2011.

From Gallup:
Americans’ views of federal power have become a renewed focal point in recent weeks with allegations that the IRS used its power to selectively audit certain types of organizations, and news reports of Justice Department investigations into Associated Press and Fox News records and emails. It does not appear, however, that these news stories have dramatically altered Americans’ views of the federal government’s power. The 54% who now say the federal government has “too much power” is in the same general range as it has been since 2005.

Only 8% of Americans say the federal government has “too little” power, while 36% say the government has about the right amount of power.

As would be expected, there is a major gulf between Republicans’ and Democrats’ views on this issue. More than twice as many Republicans (76%) as Democrats (32%) say the government has too much power, with a majority of independents coming down on the same side as Republicans.
