ABSTRACT

Voters Think the Existing Economic Order is Stacked Against Workers   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "Unemployment has skyrocketed due to the coronavirus pandemic and its economic fallout, with 38.6 million jobless claims filed in the past nine weeks. Food insecurity is significantly higher than at any time in the past twenty years, and many Americans may be falling into poverty. As lawmakers consider additional economic stimulus to help the economy and labor force recover, it is important for them to understand voters' opinions on unemployment, poverty, and the structure of the economy more generally. It allows lawmakers to fashion policies that are in line with public opinion. For progressives, it points to potentially useful rhetorical strategies for advancing their causes. As part of a May 2020 survey, Data for Progress polled registered voters about their opinions on the cause of unemployment, the cause of poverty, and the existing economic order."
