Article from The Daily Caller by Audrey Conklin.
Americans are increasingly in favor of universal basic income (UBI), according to a Hill-HarrisX poll released Wednesday.
The national poll, which asked 1,001 registered voters whether they believe the “government should have a [UBI] program,” found that 49% are in favor of such a policy — up 6% from a similar poll released in February. Voters who oppose a UBI policy dropped from 57% in February to 51% in Wednesday’s poll.

Young voters, however, remain largely more in favor of a UBI program than those older than 65. Among voters between the ages of 18 and 34, 72% were in favor of UBI. By contrast, only 26% of voters over 65 expressed support for such a program.
Among political parties, 66% of Democrats compared to 30% of Republicans and 48% of independents were in favor of UBI.
