Poll shows concern over government expansion

Press Release from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce

Data Exposes Concerns Among Small Businesses and Voters with Lack of Progress on Jobs

In advance of last Wednesday’s Jobs for America: Summit 2010, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce today released two surveys showing that small business owners and voters are deeply concerned about the impact government expansion and debt are having on job creation.

The polling reflects an across-the-board concern about Washington’s policy agenda and its impact on the economy. The polls were conducted July 6-8 by the Lombardo Consulting Group.

“These polls reveal that small business owners and Americans in general are deeply concerned about the state of the U.S. job market and prospects for recovery, and that the avalanche of new regulations on business are resulting in a weaker economy,” said Stan Anderson, executive director of the U.S. Chamber’s Campaign for Free Enterprise.

“All the government spending and debt accumulated during the past year and a half have not produced results and Americans are increasingly convinced that this government’s actions have made the situation worse.”

Of the 300 small business owners who completed an online survey, nearly six in ten (57%) feel that this administration does not have a clear plan for creating jobs. Nearly seven in ten (68%) agree that this administration’s new rules and regulations are expanding the size of government “far too much, resulting in a weaker U.S. economy and fewer jobs.”

In addition, eight in ten (80%) said that they are either “very” or “somewhat concerned” about the growth in the size and power of the U.S. federal government over the past few years. A plurality (39%) of small business owners think that the situation for people looking for jobs in the U.S. will “get worse” over the next six months.

A telephone poll of 800 U.S. registered voters highlighted that more than six in ten (62%) voters feel that this administration does not have a clear plan for creating jobs. Most voters (60%) agree that this administration’s new rules and regulations are expanding the size of government “far too much, resulting in a weaker U.S. economy and fewer jobs.”

In addition, nearly eight in ten (78%) say that they are either “very” or “somewhat concerned” about the growth in the size and power of the U.S. federal government over the past few years.
