Poll: 34% support government with higher taxes and more services, up 10 point over last month

One-in-three Likely U.S. Voters (34%) now prefer a larger government with more services and higher taxes to one with fewer services and lower taxes. That’s up 10 points from a month ago and the highest level of support for bigger government in over six years of regular surveying.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% of voters still favor smaller government, but that’s down from 64% in November.
