Sanders has long struggled with the truth regarding the state of America’s poor people relative to the rest of the world.
In fact, America’s poor people are well off relative to the rest of the world.
Research by the Mises Institute, an economically-focused think tank, found that America’s poor people are better off than middle class people in much of Europe.
Similarly, Pew Research found that as of 2011, 88 percent of Americans qualify as either upper-middle class or “high income.”
“And many Americans who are classified as ‘poor’ by the U.S. government would be middle income globally,” Pew notes.
