Americans Want Smaller Government


Amidst historic lows in approval ratings for the federal government, Americans still have confidence in local and state governments, according to a new Gallup poll, a clear indication that the people are sick and tired of big government over reach and wish to see problems dealt with by their locally elected representatives.

“Two-thirds of Americans have a great deal or fair amount of confidence in their local governments to handle local problems, and a solid majority feel the same way about their state government.” reports Gallup on findings from its annual Governance poll.

The poll found that just 5% have a “great deal of confidence” in the legislative branch, with less than a third expressing any form of confidence whatsoever.

The Executive branch faired little better with just 17% expressing a great deal of confidence and less than half in total expressing any form of confidence.
