The Public's View On Issues In Eleven Charts
These charts were made using information in the newest YouGov Poll -- done between July 2nd and 4th of a random national sample of 1,300 adults, with a margin of error of 3.9 points.
Receiving majority support were -- raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, raising taxes on families making more than $250,000 a year, belief that the economic system favors the rich, keeping abortion legal in all/most cases, stricter gun control, and opposing a constitutional amendment to let states ban gay marriage.
Instituting a single-payer health care system, giving college students free tuition, repealing Obamacare, giving undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship, and building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico did not receive majority support (either for or against).
