WP/PPP Polls: Most Want Higher Minimum Wage

From the Politico:

Polls: Boost the minimum wage

By TAL KOPAN | December 18, 2013

A majority of Americans support raising the minimum wage, according to two new polls. Two-thirds of those surveyed said they support raising the minimum wage in a Washington Post/ABC News poll out Wednesday, including 48 percent who said they strongly support it, while 31 percent opposed it.

This is just more of Obama’s lickspittle media doing his bidding. They are so subtle, aren’t they?’]

But fine, lets govern by polls. Let’s start by getting rid of Obama-Care, which has never been popular in any polls.

Asked what the current $7.25 wage should be raised to, 34 percent said it should be between the current mark and $9, and 25 percent said it should be between $9 and $10.

Why are they being so niggardly? Why stop at $10 an hour? Don’t they think people’s time is worth more than that?

In a Public Policy Polling survey released Tuesday, a majority of registered voters supported raising the limit to $10. The left-leaning firm found that 56 percent of voters are in favor of hitting that level, while 38 percent are against it.

Senate Democrats have been pushing a bill that would raise the minimum wage to $10.10. The White House has supported that bill and President Barack Obama made raising the minimum wage a centerpiece of a recent speech on inequality…

But it’s just a coincidence that the media are polling about this, now that Obama and the Democrats want this distraction from Obama-Care. After all, income inequality is at the top of everyone’s list of issues.

Of course, we are kidding. As we have noted before, according to Gallup only 1% of the US public even think it’s an important economic issue. Let alone an important issue in general.
