Five years since the financial crisis began, Americans’ animosity toward Wall Street rages on.
A new NBC News / Wall Street Journal poll shows 42% have a negative view of Wall Street firms. NBC points out that “That is the lowest rating of any institution included in the poll.”
52% of those polled said they have been at least somewhat affected by the Wall Street crisis.
People also expressed pessimism about the economy; only 27% said the economy would improve in the next year. And of those respondents who described themselves as middle class, 43% said it was at least somewhat likely they’d fall out of middle class in the next five to seven years.
