  • When robots take human jobs, Republicans won’t care

    Fast Company - 01/31/2018

    A new Gallup poll from Northeastern University asked  3,297 U.S. adults just that. Surveyed by mail, they were questioned about their concerns and hopes for AI.

    One particular line of questioning caught my attention. It asked whether a universal basic income should be established to help Americans who’ve lost their jobs to AI.  In this chart by Column Five, you’ll see there’s about a 50-50 split between those who support the idea and those who don’t. But look closer, and you’ll find the outlier: Only 28% of Republicans polled support the idea, while 68% of Democrats do.
