Most people in the U.S. are still proponents of capitalism, but a majority also believe that the economic system we have is inherently unfair.
- 58 percent of people say that “unfairness in the economic system that favors the wealthy” is a bigger problem than “over-regulation of the free market that interferes with growth and prosperity” (39 percent)
- Among 18-24 year-olds, that gap is a chasm: 76 to 21 percent
- Among those 65 and older, it’s a narrow 51 to 46 percent
- A huge majority of Democrats (90 percent) say they would be excited to vote for a candidate who promises to reform the economic system, with 71 percent of independents saying the same.
