Nearly seven-in-ten Americans say large banks and financial institutions have benefited the most from post-recession government policies (apparently, three-in-ten Americans don’t have a clue).
Pew reports that sizable majorities say the beneficiaries of government policies are large banks and financial institutions, large corporations and wealthy people. The beneficiaries according to the public: 69% say large banks and financial institutions gained the most; 67% noted large corporations, and 59% said wealthy people.

People have finally come around to realizing what happened and who made out like bandits. I guess better late than never.
