Sign of Hope: Eight Out of Ten American Voters Believe that U.S. Was Founded On Ideals of Freedom and Equality
According to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen, an overwhelming majority of American voters believe that America was founded on the Declaration of Independence’s ideals, despite that the country has, at times, failed to live up to them.
The poll found that “[S]eventy-nine percent of the respondents believe that the statement that the U.S. was ‘founded on the ideals of freedom and equality, though we have never fully lived up to those ideals’ is more accurate than the belief that those founding ideals were a ‘lie.’ Just 11% believed the “lie” interpretation to be more accurate.”
The national survey of 1,200 registered voters was conducted Jul. 30 – Aug. 1, 2020 by Rasmussen, with the margin of sampling error being +/- 2.8% for full sample.
