NEW YORK, November 9. /TASS/. A majority of US citizens believe that traditional parties and politicians do not care about the problems of ordinary people, while the economic system benefits only the rich and powerful, according to a joint survey by Reuters and Ipsos.
The early reading of the poll, released on Wednesday, indicates that 68% of respondents agree that "traditional parties and politicians don’t care about people like me."
A total of 72% agree "the American economy is rigged to advantage the rich and powerful," while 75% think that the country needs "a strong leader to take the country back" from those who had accumulated wealth and power.
The survey also shows a strong distrust in the mainstream media, who, as 76% believe, are more interested in making money than delivering true and unbiased information.
54% feel that it has become "increasingly hard" for ordinary people to be successful in the country.
The survey was conducted in all 50 states of the country and involved over 10,600 people who have already cast their ballots in Tuesday’s general elections.
The country will elect its president and vice president, as well as all 435 members of the House of Representatives, 34 out of 100 Congress senators. Governors of 12 states and two unincorporated territories (Puerto Rico and American Samoa), along with mayors of 15 major cities, will also be chosen.
