A new Gallup poll shows a record high number of Americans now say that “big government” is the biggest threat to American’s future. That option beat out “big business” and “big labor” by overwhelming margins.
Report from Gallup:
Seventy-two percent of Americans say big government is a greater threat to the U.S. in the future than is big business or big labor, a record high in the nearly 50-year history of this question. The prior high for big government was 65% in 1999 and 2000. Big government has always topped big business and big labor, including in the initial asking in 1965, but just 35% named it at that time.
What category do you fall in if asked the same poll question:
“In your opinion, which of the following will be the biggest threat to the country in the future — big business, big labor, big government or __________ ?”
If you don’t like the three options, feel free to fill in the blank.
