The largest share of support was allocated to small private entrepreneurs (electricians, heating engineers, seamstresses, etc), followed by owners of mall shops and doctors. A mostly negative response was detected towards senior politicians, foreign owners of companies and senior officials and civil servants.

Czechs also considers small private entrepreneurs, owners of small shops, and doctors to be of most use to society. On the other hand, a majority of respondentes recons that aristocrats, senior politicians and senior officials and civil servants are to our disadvantage.
