National Survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters

Conducted October 4-5, 2016
By Rasmussen Reports

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

2* How fair is the economy to middle-class Americans?

3* 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?


4* Generally speaking, how do most people get rich? Is it by inheriting money, getting lucky or by working hard?
