Big Government, Big Business, Big Labor: Which Do Americans Consider The Greatest Danger?

From December 18, 2013 Gallup.com: 72% of Americans consider Big Government the greatest threat, as opposed to 21% who consider Big Business the greatest threat, and 5% who are worried about Big Labor.  Interestingly enough, the previous high was 65% in 1999 and 2000 -- the last time a Democrat controlled the White House.  Why, it is almost like Democrats remind Americans of why the government is dangerous!

I'm at a loss as to why people think there is a difference between them.

When you're being strung up on a tripod, arguments about which of the legs is more dangerous are beside the point.

There are actually severe big differences: Big Business without governmental assistance is pretty limited on the damage it can do to an individual. Big Labor can be a little more dangerous, but again, without governmental assistance, it is limited in its power. Big Government without any assistance from Big Labor or Big Business can send in a SWAT team, and very few Americans will even give it a second thought.
