More Americans Think Increased Government Spending Hurts the Economy

A new poll finds Americans generally remain convinced that increased government spending hurts the economy.

Rasmussen Reports unveiled a poll on Thursday which shows 47 percent of likely voters across the nation think more government spending hurts the economy while 31 percent of them believe more government spending helps the economy. A much lower percentage of those surveyed -- 12 percent -- thinks increased government spending has no impact on the economy one way or the other.

The poll of 1,000 likely voters was taken from May 21-22 and had a margin of error of +/- 3 percent.
