Rasmussen pits Populists vs. The Political Class

From Rasmussen Reports:

There has been a lot of talk recently about populist outrage at the corporate and political shenanigans surrounding the financial bailout. As a result, Rasmussen Reports created a tool to measure the differing views of the Political Class and Mainstream America. The mainstream, or populist, view sees big government and big business as political allies rather than political opponents.

Here are the three test questions:

-- Generally speaking, when it comes to important national issues, whose judgment do you trust more - the American people or America’s political leaders?

-- Some people believe that the federal government has become a special interest group that looks out primarily for its own interests. Has the federal government become a special interest group?

-- Do government and big business often work together in ways that hurt consumers and investors?

I'm sure you can figure out if you're a Populist or a member of The Political Class.
