Americans are more worried about technology taking away their jobs than they are about immigration or offshoring, according to a new Gallup survey released Friday.

The survey showed that 58 percent said new technology is their primary worry where job loss is concerned, compared to 42 percent, reports The Daily Caller.

By the numbers:

  • 62 percent of people with white collar jobs said they’re more worried about new technology.
  • 52 percent with blue collar jobs fear technology where their jobs are concerned.
  • 57 percent of people with less than a bachelor’s degree are concerned about new technology.
  • 61 percent of those with a bachelor’s degree or higher feared technology over immigration or offshoring.
  • 61 percent of 18- to 35-year-olds feared technology’s effect on jobs, compared to 57 percent among people ages 51-65.

Meanwhile, Republicans were the only group surveyed more worried about immigrants and corporate displacement, with 52 percent concerned about those factors and their jobs and 48 percent worried by new technology.

Democrats, meanwhile, came in at 67 percent concerned about technology to 57 percent about the other reasons.

The poll, conducted by Gallup and Northeastern University, involved a random sample of 5,297 adults ages 18 and older, and included 12 separate margins of error, from plus or minus two percentage points to six.
