The Obama Administration has one notable success that can’t be denied them. They’ve convinced more Americans that the federal government is a threat than ever before:
PRINCETON, NJ — 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.
It’s a keen sense of the obvious. The feds got the atom bomb.
The one thing I wonder about is how people are distinguishing among Big Government, Big Business, and Big Labor. I don’t think the lines are that sharp these days.
