National Survey of 1,000 Likely
Conducted September 26-27, 2010
By Rasmussen Reports
1* As a nation, is America overtaxed?
2* How closely have you followed recent news stories about the Republican Pledge to America?
3* Is the Republican Pledge to America a serious policy document or a campaign gimmick?
4* If the Republicans gain control of Congress, how likely is it that they would actually do what they promised in the Pledge to America?
5* A proposal has been made to impose an across the board hiring freeze on the federal government. Suppose you had a choice between an across the board hiring freeze, a 10% cut in the number of federal employees, or a policy of allowing the government to hire the right number of people to handle all government obligations. Which approach would you prefer?
