Majority of millionaires say wealth inequality is a 'major problem'


With Democrats going all-in on their income inequality campaign pitch, a new poll finds the message is ringing true with a surprising group of people: the super-rich.

A slight majority (51 percent) of the millionaires polled by CNBC say wealth inequality is a "major problem" in the U.S. Moreover, 64 percent support raising taxes on the wealthy, while 63 percent endorse raising the minimum wage.

That said, only five percent of the 514 millionaires surveyed feel "guilty" about all their cash. And anonymously voicing support for higher taxes on yourself doesn't necessarily mean you'd support such a policy in reality.
