Rassmussen: 90% Of Likely Voters Want You Off Your Ass And A Shovel In Your Hands

Maybe not a shovel, but they want you doing something:

Voters overwhelmingly believe in the value of hard work and think it should be rewarded. But over half continue to feel the U.S. economy is not fair.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 90% of Likely U.S. Voters believe it is important that people who are physically able to work are required to support themselves, including 71% who consider it Very Important. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Ninety percent (90%) also think it’s important to insure that everyone who is willing to work hard has a chance to earn a middle class lifestyle, with 67% who regard it as Very Important.

Overall, just 45% of voters now view the U.S. economy as at least somewhat fair. Fifty-one percent (51%) consider the economy in this country to be unfair. This is an improvement since May, but similar to attitudes in March,  February, and December.

But over half are convinced that you can’t make it to middle class.

  1. Just as if we forced Congress to “work” for minimum wage, if everyone with a job was forced to give it up for someone without one, we might se a change in a couple of those numbers. Admittedly, not every working American could easily be replaced by someone currently unemployed, but hopefully you get my drift.

  2. Then how in the world did Obama get re-elected!

    If you are too stupid to understand that it’s Obama and his progressive agenda to destroy the middle class then you are likely too stupid or immoral to exercise you right to vote. I realize it’s every citizen has the right to vote regardless of station in life, IQ, morality, etc., but it is real frustrating to watch the country fall to pieces and the ones responsible are voting for more of the same.

    Must be the Stockholm syndrome for the low information voters. Like the new AT&T commercial “More is Better”.

  3. 1* Generally speaking, how fair is the US economy today? Is it very fair, somewhat fair, not very fair, or not at all fair?

    —Losers always talk about fairness. Winners go home and **** the prom queen.

    2* In thinking about the economy, how important is it that people who are physically able to work are required to support themselves?

    —Required? Work is always a choice in free countries, no matter the ability.

    3* In thinking about the economy, how important is it that people who work hard earn more than those who don’t?

    —Everyone supposedly works hard. Just ask them. Now suppose I move this big pile of rocks from point A to point B, a pointless act. I deserve money for that just because I worked my ass off?

    4* In thinking about the economy, how important is it to insure that everyone willing to work hard should have the chance to earn a middle class life style?

    —Insure? Are we talking about a government program? Or is this a job for the EEOC?

    5* Which is more fair — an economic system that guarantees everyone equal income and equal wealth? Or a system that rewards those who work hard even if it means a vast difference between rich and poor?

    —Guarantee equal wealth? Lets say person A and person B make $100,000. Person A saves and buys a home. Person B parties like a rock star and doesn’t have anything to show. The system is unfair? What about personal responsibility?
