 Poll shows new attitude about government

Fewer Americans than ever believe the government should promote traditional values, according to a poll released Wednesday.

Only 40 percent of registered voters believe promoting traditional values is an important role for government, down from 57 percent in 2008, according to a CNN/ORC survey. The finding could benefit Democrats, if voters believe the GOP is spending too much time pushing a social agenda.

At the same time, six in 10 registered voters said the government is doing too much that should be left to individuals and businesses, a result advocates of small government should find encouraging. That result is close to an all-time high, according to CNN.

The poll of 883 registered voters was conducted between Sept. 28 and Sept. 30. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
