Since I've seen conservatives on here touting Gallup as a valid pollster; according to Gallup, most Americans, even a majority of Republican voters, are in favor of increasing the federal minimum wage to $9.

Favor or oppose?

Most Americans for Raising Minimum Wage

Edit: Either raise the minimum wage to $9 or let it stay the same. If you want to vote no to $9 because you want it higher, then just vote yes

Not enough, except as possibly a 90-day training wage.

Maybe I should have phrased the question: do you favor or oppose an increase in the minimum wage to any amount.

For this poll, let's assume $9 or keep it at $7.25.

if states want to set a minimum wage, that is one thing, but the federal government is not the agency that is the one that should be setting things like this. in some places $7.35 an hour is plenty, in other places $12 isnt enough. thus it should be the states that set a minimum wage, not the one size fits all feds.

Then "most Americans" can start their own businesses and pay their employees whatever they want.

Guess what percentage of Americans favor raising the minimum wage. Or, not guess, but read it. Then tell us how many Republicans oppose it

No offense but if you vote to support minimum wage, you do realize you literally vote to say that you are stupid right?
