Most Poor People in the US...
Percentage of Americans Agreeing...
In 1994, Americans were just as likely to blame "not-working" as they were to blame "not-earning-enough" for the poor's lack of adequate income. This opinion changed substantially by 2001, when only one-in-three Americans believed the poor simply did not work. By 2012, with America reeling from the effects of the Great Recession, less than one-quarter still held this belief.
