Six in 10 likely U.S. voters say the federal government should cut spending to deal with the nation’s current economic problems, a new poll shows.

Twenty-eight percent think that, in reacting to the nation’s current economic problems, the government should increase spending, according to the Rasmussen Reports survey. Still, that’s the highest level of support for spending increases in regular surveying since April 2012.


Thirteen percent aren’t sure.

Half say they’re worried that the federal government will not do enough in reacting to the country’s economic problems, compared to doing too much.

The survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted Dec. 27-28 and has a margin of error of three percentage points.
