According to a new Rasmussen Reports phone and online survey, just 28 percent of American adults believe maintenance and repair of infrastructure is primarily a federal responsibility.
Forty-seven percent told Rasmussen state government should be primarily responsible for infrastructure maintenance and repair while seven percent says local government should. Eighteen percent are not sure.
In 2017 31 percent said infrastructure maintenance was primarily a federal responsibility and 52 percent said it was a state responsibility.
When asked to rate the safety of infrastructure in their own area, just 19 percent rated it as poor. Thirty-eight percent said it was fair, 31 percent said good and nine percent said excellent.
President Joe Biden is reportedly thinking about a major infrastructure investment plan.
