US / 54 percent support minimum wage increase

A new Rasmussen poll indicates that 54 percent of Americans favor raising the Minimum Wage from $7.25 to $9 an hour, as the president proposed in his State of the Union address last week.

“Most voters don’t think the minimum wage is enough to live on, and support President Obama’s proposal to raise it from $7.25 an hour to $9 an hour,” Rasmussen found. “They’re more narrowly divided, however, when asked if hiking the minimum wage will be good for the economy.”
