Concern that the government will do too much to help the economy is at its highest level since last fall.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 43% of Likely U.S. Voters are more worried that the federal government will do too much rather than not enough in reacting to the nation’s economic problems. That’s up from 39% in March and the highest level of concern since September.  Slightly more  (48%) still fear that the government won’t do enough to help the economy.  (To see survey question wording, click here.)
