How do you view the parties?

Which Class Does Each Party Favor?
Based on middle class respondents.

In general, do you think the Democratic Party favors the rich, favors the middle or favors the poor?
Middle Class: Democrats Favor

In general, do you think the Republican Party favors the rich, favors the middle class or favors the poor?
Middle Class: Republicans Favor

Notice how Democrats see the parties very differently than everyone else? What if you knew that the self-identified Democrats/Lean Democrat were less than half of the Middle Class survey population?
Middle Class Partisans
Knowing that, would you write:

* Most middle class adults agree with the old saw that the Republican Party favors the rich while the Democratic Party favors the middle class and the poor.

* Nearly six-in-ten (58%) middle class survey respondents say the Republican Party favors the rich, while nearly two-thirds say the Democratic Party favors the middle class (39%) or the poor (26%).
