Poll: Americans Want Feds Out of Light Bulb Choices

It's our money


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.)
