    if that statement in the blockquote was actually read to those polled, then this poll is not sound.

    “Increasing the minimum wage would be good for small businesses. It means people will have a higher percentage of their income to spend on goods and services and it is proven that low-wage earners tend to spend money at local businesses who will be able to grow and hire new workers.”

    That is a pretty loaded way to ask a poll question.
