Fewer Blame Poverty on the Poor

A new NBC/WSJ poll notes that when asked what is the bigger cause of poverty today, 46% cited "circumstances beyond people's control," versus 44% who said it was due to "people not doing enough."

First Read: "That's a big change when the poll last asked this question in 1995, when 60% said it was due to people not doing enough, and when 30% said it was because of circumstances beyond people's control."
