Over half of Americans now lack confidence in the U.S. banking system, and more than ever are worried about losing the money they have in the bank.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 46% of American adults are at least somewhat confident in the stability of the U.S. banking industry, but 52% are not. This includes 11% who are very confident and 12% who are not at all confident.
The survey of 1,000 American Adults nationwide was conducted on June 10-11, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC.
