Few Think Government Has Consent of the Governed

The Declaration of Independence says that governments derive their authority from the consent of the governed, but only one-in-four voters think the American government today has that consent.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 23% of Likely U.S. Voters think the federal government today has the consent of the governed. Fifty-seven percent (57%) do not, but 20% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 Likely U.S. Voters was conducted by Rasmussen Reports on July 16-17, 2017. The margin of sampling error for the survey is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Fieldwork for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
