REPUBLICANS THINK IT'S YOUR FAULT THAT YOU ARE POOR

A new Pew poll shows that Republicans believe you have the power to be rich or poor and that poor people are poor because they don't work as hard. 

FIfty-one percent of Republicans surveyed believe that people are poor due to a lack of effort.

Republicans also think rich people are responsible for their wealth.

Fifty-seven percent of those surveyed said that people are rich because they "worked harder than others," compared to 32 percent who say it's because they had more advantages.
