A new Gallup poll shows that a majority of Americans view the government as too powerful and obtrusive.

The poll found:

– 59% of Americans now believe the federal government has too much power

– 46% believe “the federal government poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens”.

Only slightly more (51%) disagree with that statement *

* Gallup notes:

One can say with 95% confidence that the maximum margin of sampling error is ±4 percentage points.

That means that as much as half of Americans may actually agree the government poses a threat.
