Recent Pew Research Study: Republicans increasingly say colleges have negative impact on U.S., and more

A recent study by the Pew Research Center has produced some interesting and, arguably, not surprising results on a variety of topics. I suppose it's just been finally quanitified to show that we have scientific data to justify it. One of the most prominent being the effect of colleges/universities on the country:

A majority of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents (58%) now say that colleges and universities have a negative effect on the country, up from 45% last year. By contrast, most Democrats and Democratic leaners (72%) say colleges and universities have a positive effect, which is little changed from recent years.

Furthermore, the study also looks into the perspectives of the media, views of the impact of banks, unions, and other financial institutions; and religion.
