Survey: Most Americans want government commitment to reduce inequality

A national survey conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of Lehigh University 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 ‘important’ that ‘the US government commit to reducing economic inequality over the next year.’
