New Survey Indicates Small Business Owners Are Most Favorable and Most Economically Trusted Institution in America

Washington D.C. — A Job Creators Network Foundation national survey found that members of the U.S. military and small business owners are viewed far more favorably than other segments of society.  Eighty-seven percent (87%) have a favorable opinion of military personnel and; 86% say the same of small business owners.

“When it comes to both favorability and trust, members of the military and small business are truly in a league of their own,” according to Scott Rasmussen, president of RMG Research. His firm conducted the survey of 1,200 Registered Voters.

In stark contrast, corporate CEOs and members of Congress are viewed favorably by just over one-third of Americans. Small business owners are also viewed far more favorably than college professors, union leaders, local elected officials, and news reporters.

Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of Job Creators Network, released the following statement: 

“This poll confirms that small business owners are the pillars of American communities. More people trust their economic policy perspectives than any other American institution. Therefore, it’s vital that small business owners’ experiences and points of view be included in every public policy proposal that could affect the economy. It’s time that policymakers valued small business owners as much as the general public.”
