According to yesterday’s Rasmussen Reports, 77 % of American voters see unwillingness to cut government spending as a bigger problem than resistence to tax hikes! Just 28% of all voters say that increasing government spending will help the economy. Seventy-nine percent (79%) of Republicans and 61% of unaffiliated voters believe increased government spending hurts the economy. 49% of Democrats think more government spending is good for the economy, while just 27% say it hurts. 83% of the ‘Political Class’ believes increased government spending helps the economy. 52% of voters now believe they pay more than their fair share of taxes. However, 54% of the Political Class disagree.
If these statistics are accurate, the 2010 elections should be very interesting!
