March 30, 2021: Thirty-four percent (34%) of voters believe the federal government today supports America's founding ideals of freedom, equality, and self-governance. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 43% believe the federal government does not support these ideals and 23% are not sure.[1]

Fifty-seven percent (57%) of Republicans surveyed and 49% of independents believe the federal government is not committed to supporting freedom, equality, and self-governance. However, 55% of Democratic respondents believe the federal government does support them.[1]

Other data from the survey found that 83% of voters believe the nation's founding ideals are worth fighting for.[2] However, just 53% of those believe most Americans support those ideals.[1]

Data released earlier showed that 59% believe the federal government is a special interest group that looks out primarily for its own interests.
