Poll Discusses Americans’ Local Government Satisfaction Level

In a recent poll by the Atlantic Media/Siemens “State of the City”, Americans are generally happy with their local government and the services they receive. On average, per a Citylab report that covered the poll’s results, “Whether men or women, whether white, black, or Hispanic, in every region and locality, of any age or income group, respondents said that the government services they received were a decent value for the local taxes they paid.” Despite the results, however, most respondents were in favor of tax cuts and lesser spending. Additionally, the poll discovered major racial and demographic differences in spending priorities, as well as dissention between whites and minorities on their satisfaction with local government.
