Rasmussen’s latest poll is interesting.

Americans continue to believe that too many of their fellow citizens are financially dependent on the government, but they’re less critical of programs to help the poor.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 64% of American Adults think there are too many Americans dependent on the government for financial aid. Only eight percent (8%) believe not enough Americans are dependent on this aid, while 17% feel the level of dependency is about right.

Who are those 8%? I mean, other than President Obama and his cabinet?

""" Americans continue to believe that too many of their fellow citizens are financially dependent on the government, but they’re less critical of programs to help the poor. """

Pefectly rational, based on the statistics about government assistance that these folks have read or heard about; they can do math. They know that a lot more people besides just the poor are getting government assistance. With the official "poverty" rate at about 15%, it makes little sense to most people that the feds are handing out bennies to almost half the population, even allowing for the inclusion of seniors.
