Americans strongly believe that it shouldn't be up to the government what kind of light bulbs they use. That helps explain why 60% still oppose the ban on traditional bulbs that took effect on January 1.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 18% of American Adults believe it is the government's job to tell people in this country what kind of light bulb to use. Seventy-two percent (72%) disagree and feel it is not the government's job to make that call. Ten percent (10%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
