Democrats have a bleak outlook of the American dream and the rights of Americans, according to the results of a new poll.

Key findings from an in-depth Pew Research Center survey titled "the Public, the Political System, and American Democracy:"

  • 37 percent of Democrats said the following sentence describes the United States very or somewhat well: "everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed." 74 percent of Republicans said the same.
  • 38 percent of Democrats said the rights and freedoms of all people are respected in the U.S., with 60 percent of Republicans saying the same.
  • 34 percent of Democrats said the U.S. succeeds at respecting "the views of people who are not in the majority on issues," while 49 percent Republicans said the same.
  • A combined 48 percent of Democrats said democracy is working very or somewhat well in the U.S. today, while a combined 72 percent of Republicans said the same.

Voters from both parties nearly agreed on some issues, however:

  • 17 percent of Republicans and 20 percent of Democrats said lawmakers from both parties work together.
  • 27 percent of Republicans and 23 percent of Democrats said the tone of political debate in the U.S. is respectful.
  • 29 percent of Republicans and 30 percent of Democrats said politicians face serious consequences for misconduct.
