Newly released polling data shows most American think the government is too big and has too much power.
Gallup released the new survey data, which shows that 54% of surveyed Americans say government is "trying to do too many things that should be left to individuals and businesses." That number has stayed relatively the same since 2021.
Overall, only 43% of surveyed Americans say the government should be doing more.
"This critique of the government is similar to Americans’ views over the past two years; however, it differs from 2020, when 54% of Americans said they wanted the government to do more," Gallup said. "That reading, taken in the first year of the pandemic, is the only time in Gallup’s trend dating back to 1992 that a majority have wanted a more active government."
