National Survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters

Conducted February 10-11, 2020
By Rasmussen Reports


1* The U.S. federal government spent over $4 trillion in fiscal year 2018 and spent even more last year. Is there too much federal government spending or too little? Or is the amount spent about right?


2* As the government looks for ways to reduce the federal budget, should thoughtful spending cuts be considered in every program of the federal government?


3* (Answered by 490 Likely Voters Who Want Spending Cuts in Every Program) Is it better to cut defense spending or domestic entitlement programs? Or should cuts be made in both areas?


4* How likely is it that government spending will be significantly reduced over the next few years?
