Finding surveys with a large enough sample of upper-class Americans to 
generalize from has historically been a great challenge for pollsters. 
To my knowledge, there has not yet been a single national study 
examining the role of upper-class affluence in impacting the political 
preferences of the wealthy. So my findings here represent a first effort 
to address the role of upper-class elitism on attitude formation. Sadly, 
they suggest that little is likely to change in the future in terms of 
prospects for a “Green New Deal” or the introduction of a progressive 
governing regime, so long as wealthy individuals continue to dominate 
American politics.
