Only 19% Say Federal Government Has Consent of the Governed

Rasmussen Poll:

Just 19% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the federal government today has the consent of the governed, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

That’s down two points from January  but still up slightly  from the all-time low of 17% reached in August. This finding is generally in keeping with regular surveying for the past four years.  Sixty-sixty percent (66%) do not believe the federal government has the consent of the governed today, while 16% are unsure.

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on April 9-10, 2014 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
