Who Says the American Public Can’t Agree?

January 25, 2010

A Washington Post-ABC News poll, released Thursday, found that 73 percent of Americans would support “a special tax on bonuses over $1 million.” Support crosses party lines.

That same poll found that 79 percent of the American public believe that banks are to blame for the nation’s economic troubles (58% say ” greatly to blame”).

By a 72-to-19 percent margin, according to a new CBS poll, Americans now feel that the federal bailout has benefited “mostly just a few big investors and people who work on Wall Street.” Most Americans think this is true regardless of party affiliation or income level.
