Rasmussen: Americans Not Buying-in To Obama's Socialist AgendaTopics: Political News and commentaries
Although I'm paraphrasing a bit in the title, it's essentially what Friday's Rasmussen report shows. After all, how else best to describe the results of a national telephone survey that finds that 72% of Likely U.S. Voters believe a free market economy is better than an economy managed by the government.
And it appears that just 14% of Likely American Voters are socialists like Obama, since, according to the results of the same Rasmussen's survey, that's the percentage that think a government-managed economy is better. Another 14% are so clueless that they're not sure.
Rasmussen's net take is that voters remain strongly supportive of a free market economy over one controlled by the government and still think small businesses are hurt more than big businesses when the government does get involved.
Noteworthy is the fact that Friday's results show even less support for an Obamanomics-style government than last year. Last year, 69% of voters said when it comes to helping the economy and creating jobs, more competition and less government regulation is better than increased regulation and less competition.
