Rural groups endorse budget issues over social programs in a survey by the Washington Post (pdf). The survey found that rural voters are more likely than other voters to want to see a small-government state continue to be a source of tax revenue:

In fac핫 카지노t, rural voters are more likely than other voters to favor smaller government (38 percent versus 29 percent). Rural voters are also more l바카라 하는 법ikely than rural voters overall to say 카지노 딜러that government does not get enough from its people in the form of social programs (50 percent versus 33 percent).

In the end, the more rural you are, the less likely you are to think government should get more from its citizens and the less likely you are to say that government is able to do a decent job doing that.

“The most interesting finding in this particular survey from the Washington Post is that rural voters have come together in a way that is very interesting from a public policy perspective,” said Kevin Page, director of the Center for Rural Issues and senior fellow at the Center for American Progress. “But, again, this is not a new phenomenon. The results are not out of line with where these voters are politically or ideologically.”

The GOP-majority states that the poll covers are: Texas, North Dakota, Iowa, Colorado, South Dakota, and Nevada.
