Democrats can campaign on technology for edge in 2020
The Hill - 04/18/2018
Americans have taken this possibility to heart. Polls indicate that although public attitudes toward technology are generally positive, many are worried that innovation could exacerbate unemployment and inequality. Researchers at Northeastern University and Gallup found in a recent study that 58 percent of U.S. adults view new technology as a greater threat to jobs than immigration and offshoring. The story is much the same when it comes to inequality, with 63 percent of Americans anticipating that technological innovation will widen the gap between rich and poor.
