Clinton And Trump Supporters Are Angry At Different Entities
Supporters of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are equally angry with the U.S. Congress (82%). That's no surprise, since poll after poll has shown that Republicans, Democrats, and Independents all have a very unfavorable opinion of this Congress.
But when you shift the view away from Congress to other entities, the Clinton and Trump supporters have very different views. A whopping 96% of Trump supporters are angry with the federal government in general, but only 36% of Clinton supporters have that same anger.
The views are reversed when it comes to corporations. About 70% of Clinton supporters are angry at the giant corporations, while only 36% of Trump supporters share that anger.
This makes sense, since Clinton and the Democrats want to give the government more power to regulate and tax corporations, and Trump and Republicans want to give corporations more power to act without government regulation or taxation.
The chart above represents the results of a new Rasmussen Poll -- done on August 23rd and 24th of a random national sample of 1,000 likely voters, with a margin of error of 3 points.
