75% Say Free Markets Better Than Government Management of Economy, Political Class Disagrees – Rasmussen Reports™
by Charles Cherry
Polling released earlier this week showed that Americans overwhelmingly believe that more competition and less regulation is better for the economy than more regulation and less competition.
Not surprisingly, America’s Political Class is far less enamored with the virtues of a free market. In fact, Political Class voters [read: unions] narrowly prefer a government managed economy over free markets by a 44% to 37% margin.
However, among Mainstream voters, 90% prefer the free market.
