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

Conducted February 5-6, 2019
By Rasmussen Reports


1* Does the federal government spend too much or too little these days? Or is the level of government spending about right?


2* Are federal taxes too high or too low for most Americans these days? Or is the level of taxation about right?


3* Will tax increases on the wealthiest Americans help or hurt the economy? Or will they have no impact?


4* More than 44% of Americans will pay no income tax in 2018. Is that too many or not enough? Or is the level of non-taxpayers about right?
