A new poll finds most Americans say the federal government should reduce inequality, amid the Covid-19-produced economic crisis. A national survey from Harris Insights & Analytics of 2,018 Americans, conducted April 7-9, 2020, finds 78% of Americans agree that “considering the spread of coronavirus in the United States and its impact on the economy and the American people,” it is “somewhat” or “very important” that “the US government commit to reducing economic inequality.”
