There are numbers that just do not make much sense.

One of those is the recent Rasmussen poll that says 59 percent of likely U.S. voters agree with President Ronald Reagan’s inaugural declaration that “government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”

Only 27 percent disagree with 14 percent who are undecided.

Of note, this is the highest percentage in agreement with Reagan’s statement since Rasmussen first asked the question in 2008.

Despite the declaration against big government, America allegedly elected Joe Biden. Sixty-nine percent of voters say there will be bigger government under Biden.

Sixteen percent say they believe Biden is likely to deliver smaller government.
