Considering both are in each other's back pocket, that makes complete sense and no one should be surprised by this.
America hates big pharma and the government. No surprise there. But the pharmaceutical industry is hated slightly more. It ranked last in favorability among Americans, according to a new poll conducted by Gallup. This year marked the lowest net positivity rating (the difference between people who say they like the industry and those who dislike the industry) that the pharmaceutical industry has had since Gallup started polling in 2001. Big Pharma's -31 net positivity rating was so low, only a handful of industries had been ranked lower. Other hated sectors include the federal government, and oil and gas companies
The federal government had been last or tied last on Gallup's poll since 2011. This year, it ranks as the second least favorable industry. They were close to as hated as Big Pharma with a net positivity rating of -27.
