Three-quarters of the nation’s voters are “angry” at the federal government’s policies, according to a new Rasmussen Reports survey out Monday.
Of the 1,000 likely voters surveyed Feb. 5-6, 75 percent said they were either “very” or “somewhat” angry with the “current policies of the federal government.” Forty-five percent said they were “very” angry.
Only 19 percent said they were “not very” or “not at all” angry with the government, while 6 percent were not sure.
Nearly two-thirds, 60 percent, agreed with the statement that “neither Republican political leaders nor Democratic political leaders have a good understanding of what is needed today.”
The Republicans surveyed were angrier than Democrats, but both expressed frustration.
Eighty-nine percent of Republicans and 61 percent of Democrats said they were angry, while 78 percent of independent voters said they were.
More men were angry with the federal government than women, and voters who earned from $60,000 to $100,000 were found to be the angriest.
The percentage of those who said they were angry with the federal government has been on the rise. In September, 66 percent of those surveyed said they were either “very” or “somewhat” angry, while in November 71 percent said they were. The poll has a margin of error of plus- or minus-3 percentage points.
