Assigned Reading: FNC Poll: Americans Want Less Government, Less Spending
(FROM: Fox News)
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell recently made news by saying that Americans “want more government in their life.” Americans disagree. Most — 71 percent — say they want less government in their life. A much smaller number (17 percent) fall in the category described by Powell.
Without going into too much detail–I’m about to go to the Circus with my daughter (yay!)–I just spotted this and wanted to highlight it along with another poll that I’ll highlight later. This lends a little credence to the distilled, role-of-government argument I believe the GOP should treat as the core of its leaner, meaner message.
I promise to get into it more later, and I still do have something in the works in terms of a mission statement of sorts, but in the meantime I thought this poll was pretty interesting.
