Voters Think Obama More Hostile to Small Businesses Than to Big Ones

Friday, September 27, 2013

Voters continue to think President Obama is more hostile to small business than he is to big business. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 47% of Likely U.S. Voters feel Obama’s policies toward small businesses are too hostile. That's down from 51% a month ago which marked the first time that finding topped 50% but more in line with findings earlier this year.  Just three percent (3%) think his policies are too friendly toward small businesses. Thirty-nine percent (39%) say his policies in this area about right, up from a low of 35%. Twelve percent (12%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
