Just received this in my inbox. It may explain a bit why Biden and company approval ratings are falling. A majority of Americans think the government is trying to do too much and is not putting enough focus on solving existing problems. That the federal government has too much power.

Americans Revert to Favoring Reduced Government Role


As usual, it isn’t the Republicans or the Democrats that has changed their views on the role of government, it is independents. In 2020 independents favored a more active government, 56% did so vs. 36% who thought the government was doing too much. Today, those numbers are reversed, 57% says government is trying to do way too many things, should become less active while 38% think the government should be doing more.

It seems to me when we have a crisis, folks tend to think the government should do more, to solve it. When things are going good, the government should sit on its hands and play tiddlywinks. Also check out the graph that show those in favor of more services, more taxes and less services, less taxes. What I have found out here is a majority of Americans support cutting back on services, programs as long as it isn’t a program or service that involves them.

It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
