Eighty-four percent of the white working class say government does not represent their views, according to a new CNN/Kaiser Family Foundation poll.

The new CNN/KFF survey delves deeply into this pivotal group to understand their experience in an America where changing demographics and economy have arguably impacted this group more than almost any other.
Contrary to many assumptions about this group, the poll finds working class whites generally happy with their lives, and mostly satisfied with their personal financial situation. Just 18% say they are angry about the way things are going in their own lives, and 44% think America’s best days lie ahead.
But the white working class harbors deep concerns about the country’s economy, the amount the government is doing to help the working class and their own ability to influence politics.
