Poll: 74 Percent Believe Americans Rely Too Much on Government

Many think people are better served relying on friends and family than government assistance


Most voters think Americans are too dependent on the government—and a majority blames Uncle Sam himself for that.

A Fox News poll released Wednesday shows 74 percent think Americans rely too much on the government and not enough on themselves. That includes almost all Republicans (87 percent), most independents (80 percent) and a majority of Democrats (58 percent).
