A majority of bosses in America are more likely to be Republicans or favor the GOP, while most workers tend to be Democrats, according to a new survey.

A recent Pew Research Center poll found that 53 percent of managers say "they are Republican or lean" to the right as compared to 34 percent of managers who say they identify with the Democratic Party. About 44 percent of workers, meanwhile, view themselves as Democrats.

The survey of 2,002 adults taken back in October shows that 43 percent of bosses say they are conservatives while 34 percent call themselves moderates. On the other hand, 37 percent of workers call themselves conservatives while 37 percent say they are moderates.

The number of bosses who say they are liberals was 17 percent compared to 21 percent in non-managerial positions.

More than half the managers, 54 percent, had a household income of $75,000 or more, while only 32 percent of families with non- managerial jobs had an income in that range.

Pew researchers also concluded that 83 percent of bosses are "very satisfied" with life at home while seven 74 percent say are "content" with their personal lives.

"When it comes to the weekend, top managers and workers are equally likely to be found in church or attending some other religious service," a Pew reports on the attitudinal survey said.

The survey also revealed that managers tend to have a better education than non-managers, says the poll, with 16 percent having college degrees and 15 percent with college experience. Pew found that only 8 percent of top jobs go to people who are high school graduates.
