Gallup: Big government is biggest threat …

The mainstream media loves to bash big business and praise big government, but guess what … the American people don’t seem to buy it.

Each year, Gallup asks which is the bigger future threat: big business, big government or big labor.

For 50 years, big government has won that horse race … usually by a pretty big margin.

But, post 9-11 and during the Obama honeymoon period, the government-as-a-threat numbers dipped a bit.

That improvement was short-lived.

Most recently, the numbers have hit historic highs with about 70% thinking that big government is the biggest threat.

The breakdown by political party affiliation has a few surprises to offer …

Predictably, about 90% of Republicans think that big government is the biggest threat.

I guess those folks are still a bit touchy about that IRS targeting thing … or, maybe the EPA regs … or maybe ObamaCare.

More interesting: after the Obama honeymoon dip, Dems have bounced back to their historical levels … with a majority of them thinking that big government is the biggest threat.

Hmmm.  Think about that for a minute.
