Jan 23, 2024 | Political News

American “elites” say they would support the rationing of energy and meat to “fight climate change,” according to a recently released poll by the Committee to Unleash Prosperity.

The January study, “Them vs. U.S.: The Two Americas and How the Nation's Elite Is Out of Touch with Average Americans,” is based on two surveys of “1,000 Members of the Elites” conducted in September 2023 by Scott Rasmussen.

“The Elites are defined as those having a postgraduate degree, a household income of more than $150,000 annually, and living in a zip code with more than 10,000 people per square mile. Approximately 1% of the total U.S. population meets these criteria,” the Committee to Unleash Prosperity's study explained.

Of the elites surveyed, 73% identified as Democrats and 14% as Republicans.
