Income Inequality Affects Countries Democracy

02 Jan 17

Researchers from the University of the Michigan State University political science have done a new research on election and its effects on poverty. The researchers said that the rising income inequality makes the democratic-satisfaction gap wider between electoral successors and losers. For the study the scientists chose 43 countries along with the United States. Additionally, the researchers studied presidential and parliamentary elections of the chosen countries.

The scientists said that the electoral winners and losers’ satisfaction with democracy is driven by the level of income inequality. The study has shown that the income inequality has increased in recent decades in the United States. Furthermore, the Census Bureau has mentioned the income share of the top 10 percent of rich households have increased by 5 percent in the United States.

Earlier, an old study has proven that the voters who vote for the winners are more satisfied with democracy than those who support the losers.
