Here's some good news. Three-fourths of those surveyed prefer a free market over a government-run economy, according to Rasmussen Reports.

Here's some bad news: The other one-fourth either prefer to have a federal bureaucrat running their lives or they aren't sure.

In the same survey, Rasmussen found that most Americans think the country's political leaders don't care what the majority of people think:

"Not surprisingly, America’s Political Class is far less enamored with the virtues of a free market. In fact, Political Class voters narrowly prefer a government managed economy over free markets by a 44% to 37% margin. However, among Mainstream voters, 90% prefer the free market," Rasmussen said.

"Outside of the Political Class, free markets are preferred across all demographic and partisan lines. This gap may be one reason that 68% of voters believe the Political Class doesn’t care what most Americans think. Fifty-nine percent (59%) are embarrassed by the behavior of the Political Class."
