TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting. The findings suggest efforts to shrink the government may be politically risky ahead of the 2024 elections.

VERBATIM: According to a poll conducted by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, most of the respondents want Congress to cut the overall size of government, but also devote more money to the most popular and expensive programs.
