Poll: 64 Percent Want A Hands-Off Government

By Susan Duclos

Short and Sweet from Rasmussen:

Most voters continue to prefer a more hands-off government in return for lower taxes.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 64% of Likely U.S. Voters prefer a government with fewer services and lower taxes over one with more services and higher taxes. That's unchanged from last month and consistent with findings in regular surveys since late 2006. Just 25% prefer a government with more services. Eleven percent (11%) are not sure which size government they prefer.
