Lower-income U.S. families see government more favorably: survey

Lower-income American families rate government policies more favorably than those of higher-income brackets, according to a survey released on Friday showed.

This disparity in views between different income groups in the latest Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan's Surveys of Consumers could play a role in the November 2 elections and change the political landscape in Washington.

In September, 23 percent of households with an annual income below $75,000 viewed government policies favorably, nearly twice the share of households making more than $75,000 a year, according to the survey.

Back in May 2009, 34 percent of lower-income families and 29 percent of upper-income households rated government policies favorably.
