Nearly three-quarters of Americans identify big government as the greatest threat to the country’s future, according to a new poll.
The 72 percent that named big government over big business and big labor in the survey released Wednesday by Gallup is a record high in Gallup’s polling. The previous high was 65 percent in 1999 and 2000.
A record low number of those polled identified big labor as the greatest threat, at just 5 percent. Twenty-one percent said big business was the threat.
