Fifty-two percent (52%) of voters say that more government spending would be bad for the economy, including 32% who say it would be very bad. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that just 25% think more government spending would be good for the economy, including 8% who think it would be very good. Four percent (4%) say it would have no impact, and 18% are not sure.
The survey also found that 54% believe the United States is currently in a recession. Of those who do not think the U.S. is currently in a recession or are not sure, most (56%) think it is likely the U.S. will enter a recession over the next 3-6 months.
