More than half of likely Republican primary voters agree with Rick Perry that Social Security is like a "Ponzi scheme."
A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll
finds that 54 percent agree that the retirement program resembles a Ponzi plot, which is fraudulent system to collect more money than it pays out. Only 41 percent disagreed.
In contrast, 64 percent of the electorate as a whole disagree with the Texas governor on Social Security, while 29 percent endorse his view.
Perry created a firestorm during the first presidential debate in which he appeared, in which he labeled the retirement program as a Ponzi scheme that offers little to young workers.
