2) This author didn’t really have a thesis, but its purpose was to determine how Americans view poverty and antipoverty efforts. It was a big survey that asked many different types of people questions dealing with poverty. There are graphs showing information and data taken from the questions, such as if poor people would rather live on welfare and benefits or get out of poverty and live off of their own money. It also talks about if people in poverty and out of it think that the government’s anti poverty efforts are having an impact. The article offers many statistics about what the community thought about poverty, and I will definitely use those a lot. I will also use the things dealing with what Americans felt about those in poverty, and how much they thought or cared about them.
