Survey | Economic Insecurity, Rising Inequality, and Doubts about the Future: Findings from the 2014 American Values Survey

[09.23.2014]

Most Americans have a decidedly negative self-evaluation of their financial situation. Roughly 4-in-10 Americans say they are currently in excellent (7%) or good (34%) shape financially, while a majority of the public report being in only fair (37%) or poor financial shape (20%). This assessment represents a notable drop from 2010, when half of Americans indicated they were in excellent (9%) or good (41%) shape financially.

In fact, the number of white evangelical Protestants nationwide has slipped from 22 percent in 2007 to 18 percent today, which may not bode well for Republicans at the polls this November.
