Two thirds of Americans surveyed say federal government out of control

Posted May 24th, 2013 by mackler

Between May 18-20, 2013, an opinion poll was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research and Shaw & Company Research. 1,013 randomly-selected registered voters were surveyed.

68% said they feel like the federal government has gotten out of control and is threatening the basic civil liberties of Americans.

60% said the government went too far by secretly seizing telephone records of calls for A.P. reporters.

A majority said they disapprove of the job Barack Obama is doing as president.

More than three quarters said they disapprove of the job Congress is doing.

Other questions were asked. See the link for details.
