Forty-four percent of voters believe that our nation’s economic system is fair to most Americans. However, a ScottRasmussen.com survey found that 42 percent disagree and 14 percent are not sure.

Strikingly different perceptions are found across gender, age, race, income, and partisan lines.

By a 53 percent to 35 percent margin, men believe our economic system is fair.

By a 49 percent to 36 percent margin, women disagree.

Voters under 35, by a margin of 49 percent to 36 percent, believe it is unfair. Senior citizens hold the opposite view by a 51 percent to 35 percent margin.

Fifty percent of white voters believe it is fair while 37 percent do not. By a 62 percent to 23 percent margin, black voters believe it is unfair.

Fifty-six percent of Hispanic voters agree.

Sixty-eight percent of Republicans believe our economic system is fair while 59% of Democrats believe it is not. Independents are more evenly divided (39 percent fair, 45 percent unfair).

Most (54 percent) who earn more than $75,000 a year believe it is fair. By a 49 percent to 36 perent margin, those who earn less disagree.

Sixty-seven percent (67%) believe income inequality is a big problem for our nation. Most believe lifting up the income of the poor matters more than bringing down the income of the wealthy.
