National Survey of 1,000 American Adults
Conducted August 31-September 1, 2015
By Rasmussen Reports
1* How would you rate the job government public assistance programs have done in reducing poverty and getting Americans back to work – excellent, good, fair or poor?
2* Do current government programs increase the level of poverty in America or decrease the level of poverty in America? Or do they have no impact on the level of poverty?
3* Are there too many Americans dependent on the government for financial aid or not enough? Or is the level of dependency about right?
