62% Think U.S. Economy Fair to Blacks, Hispanics

Most voters continue to believe the U.S. economy is fair to women, blacks and Hispanics but are now evenly divided when asked if it’s fair to lower-income Americans. However, they still think all four are treated better than the middle class.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 60% of Likely U.S. Voters think the economy is at least somewhat fair to women, but that includes only 15% who say it’s Very Fair. Thirty-four percent (34%) believe it’s unfair to women, with seven percent (7%) who feel it is Not At All Fair. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
