Dem pollster says Americans are 'in a deeply anti-corporate mood'

Democratic pollster Nancy Zdunkewicz on Monday said on Hill.TV that most Americans, no matter where they are from or their politics, are in an anti-corporate mood, saying that voters from every demographic are "upset with corporations."

"Americans are also in a deeply anti-corporate mood," Zdunkewicz, managing director at Democracy Corps, told Hill.TV's Jamal Simmons on "What America's Thinking." 

"Whenever you do focus groups, and you ask people, 'what do you think about big corporations?' Or 'what do you think about CEO's of large companies, you cannot get more negative reactions. I mean the words are just dirty," she continued. 

"It doesn't matter if you're talking to white working-class Trump voters, or if you are talking to college-educated white voters in an urban area, it does not matter. They are very upset with corporations. They think that they have sold us out," she said. 

Zdunkewicz's comments come as Americans have voiced growing concerns over the role of big tech companies, and whether they should be regulated. 

A new Hill-HarrisX poll, released on Monday, found that 47 percent of voters said that large tech firms should be regulated.
