Three-quarters of voters are at least somewhat angry at the government's policies, according to a new Rasmussen poll.
A full 75% of respondents said they were angry at Washington, a nine point jump from September, with 45% calling themselves "very angry."
Republicans are angrier than Democrats, by a margin of 89%-61%. Republicans are also three times more likely than Dems to be "very angry."
More from Rasmussen:
Forty-nine percent (49%) worry the government will try to do too much to help the economy, while 39% fear it won’t do enough.
As the economy continues to stumble along, 59% of voters believe cutting taxes is better than increasing government spending as a job-creation tool, but 72% expect the nation’s elected politicians to increase spending instead.
Eighty-three percent (83%) of Americans say the size of the federal budget deficit is due more to the unwillingness of politicians to cut government spending than to the reluctance of taxpayers to pay more in taxes.
