Fox News Poll: 74% - Americans too dependent on gov't

Posted: Updated:

Most voters think Americans are too dependent on the government -- and a majority blames Uncle Sam himself for that.

A Fox News poll released Wednesday shows 74 percent think Americans rely too much on the government and not enough on themselves. That includes almost all Republicans (87 percent), most independents (80 percent) and a majority of Democrats (58 percent).

Voters are also more likely to blame the record number of people on food stamps -- more than 46 million -- on it being too easy to get government assistance (53 percent) than the severity of the recession (40 percent).
