Poll: Overwhelming support for $10/hour minimum wage – unless you watch Fox News

Fully two-thirds of Americans (67%) favor increasing the minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $10.00 an hour. According to Public Religion Research Institute’s 2011 American Values Survey, strong majorities of nearly all demographic groups support this sizeable hike in the minimum wage.

Notably, the only groups to oppose raising the minimum wage are Americans who identify with the Tea Party (56%) and Americans whose most trusted television media source is Fox News (54%).

These numbers remain constant from PRRI’s 2010 American Values Survey, when 67% of Americans also favored increasing the minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $10.00 an hour.
