A majority of U.S. likely voters prefer a smaller government with “fewer services and lower taxes,” a Rasmussen Reports survey released Friday found.
The survey, taken May 17-18, 2021, among 1,000 likely voters, asked respondents if they preferred a “more active government with more services and higher taxes or a smaller government with fewer services and lower taxes.”
Fifty-five percent said they prefer a smaller government with fewer services and lower taxes compared to 37 percent who chose a more active government with more services and higher taxes.
Predictably, opinions were sharply divided on party lines, with 57 percent of Democrats supporting a more active government with more services and higher taxes and 78 percent of Republicans choosing a smaller government. Fifty-six percent of independents sided with the majority of Republicans, who prefer a smaller government and lower taxes.
Notably, 51 percent of non-white voters prefer a smaller government, as do the plurality of black voters specifically, 46 percent.
