US / 72 percent approve minimum wage hike, including a majority of Republicans pool says

In a validation for the agenda being pushed by Washington Democrats, a majority of American voters support raising the minimum wage and extending unemployment insurance benefits in a new poll.

On minimum wage, voters support raising the federally mandated minimum, 72 percent to 27 percent, including a majority of Republicans, who support it 52 percent to 45 percent, according to a Quinnipiac poll out Wednesday.

Voters are split on what it should be raised to, however, with 33 percent in favor of congressional Democrats’ position of upping minimum wage to $10.10 per hour, 18 percent in favor of making it higher than that and 18 percent in favor of making it somewhere between the current $7.25 and $10.10.
