CWCS Poll: The Midterm Election and the American Dream

The “enthusiasm gap” between Republicans and Democrats widely reported by the national news media in recent weeks is not apparent in the results of the latest on-line public opinion survey conducted by the Center for Working-Class Studies (CWCS) at Youngstown State University. The poll also offers insight into how people define the American Dream and whether they think it’s still viable.  Results of the poll, the fourth in a series conducted by the Center, are available on-line at the CWCS website.

One Response to CWCS Poll: The Midterm Election and the American Dream

  1. Harry C. Triandis says:

    In 2006 the top 1% of the income distribtuion received 53% of all national income. The 300,000 top earners earned as much as the bottom 180 million Americans. Ineqality started in a major way after Reagan demolished the labor unions. The top .1% of Americans took in 1 trillion! During the recent recession the top 1% continued earning 10% per year more than during the previous year. To get references and a more complete picture e-mail me at Triandis@Illinois.edu.
