Sixty-three percent of Americans see a too-powerful government as a greater danger than a government without enough power, according to a recent Rasmussen poll.
Twenty-one percent said governments that are not powerful enough are the greater threat, and 17 percent said they weren’t sure.
Researchers surveyed 1,000 adults on June 19 and 20, asking: “What is the bigger danger in the world today…a government that is too powerful or a government that is not powerful enough?”
The question was the sixth of seven in a survey that did not establish what might be considered “enough” power for a government.
Rasmussen described the margin of sampling error as +/- 3 percentage points, with a confidence level of 95 percent.
