Folks Blame Government But Want More of It


Many in the white working class share Olah’s sentiments, according to a new CNN/Kaiser Family Foundation poll. Some 62% of white working class Americans said the federal government bears all or most of the blame for the economic troubles facing the working class. Yet, two-thirds also feel that the federal government doesn’t do enough to help working class folks.

Working class whites with lower incomes are more than twice as likely as their higher-earning peers to want more government assistance.

While there’s no set definition of the working class, CNN/KFF considers this group to include those without four-year college degrees for this poll.
