Guess What Idea Polls Rather Well Among Americans


Robin Hood lives!

65% say the gap between the rich and “everyone else” has grown.

69% say the government should work to reduce that gap.

73% favor raising the minimum wage.

63% want unemployment benefits extended for a year.

54% favor raising taxes on the wealthy and corporations to pay for expanded programs for the poor (we really need to get a better vision of this – programs are helping middle-class people as well).

49% believe public programs do more good than harm (still have some work to do there).

So, “We the People” is still an operative concept, along with being one’s brother’s (and sister’s) keeper.
