Obama is expected to concentrate on “income equality” in his speech, but 59% of respondents felt that income equality would be better addressed by less government involvement in the economy rather than more intervention. 46% of voters believed that Obama is doing a poor job addressing income inequality, while only 37% felt he was doing a good job.

When asked which was more important, economic fairness or economic growth, 53% of voters chose economic growth, while only 38% chose economic inequality.
