Majority of Democrats: Government Doesn't Do Enough

According to a new Gallup poll, the vast majority of Democrats believe the government doesn't do enough.

This viewpoint is out of touch with the majority of Americans, who believe government is too big, has too much power and overreaches too often.

A majority of Americans (54%) continue to believe the government is trying to do too many things that should be left to individuals and businesses, although that is down from the record high of 61% earlier this summer. About four in 10 Americans (39%) say the government should do more to solve the nation's problems.

A separate question in the Sept. 6-9 poll asked Americans to characterize the scope of government power. Americans are now basically split between those who say the federal government has too much power and those who say it has either the right amount of or too little power. This marks a change from the last two years; 57% last year and 59% in 2010 said the government has too much power.
