27% View U.S. Society As Unfair and Discriminatory
Saturday, November 20, 2010
More than one-out-of-four Likely U.S. Voters (27%) now believe American society is generally unfair and discriminatory, the highest negative finding in over a year.The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 60% of voters believe U.S. society is generally fair and decent, but that’s down 10 points from October and is also the lowest level found since October 2009. Another 13% are undecided. (Read the rest here)
Interestingly, this is the same percentage of respondents who, as of today, Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president in Rasmussen's Daily Presidential Tracking Poll.
While the background numbers may not reflect a perfect correlation between the political viewpoints of the respondents to the respective polls, I would not be at all shocked to learn that there is a very high degree of overlap between responders who believe that U.S. society is "unfair and discriminatory" and those who strongly approve of Obama's performance.
