Sixty-six percent (66%) of voters who support the Democratic nominee believe the federal government today is a protector of individual liberty. Among supporters of the Republican nominee, 89% think the federal government is a threat to individual liberty instead.
Thirty-six percent (36%) of all voters believe the government rarely or never does the right thing, the highest level of criticism in three years. Only 32% consider the federal government today a protector of individual liberty.
