Fifty-three percent (53%) of voters believe political corruption is a crisis in the United States. Another 36% believe it is a significant problem but not a crisis.

Those results are consistent with other ScottRasmussen.com polling data showing that 87% of voters nationwide believe corruption is widespread in the federal government.

The belief that our nation has a political corruption crisis is shared by 53% of women and 52% of men; 51% of white voters along with 55% of black and Hispanic voters; and 54% of rural voters, 53% of suburban voters, and 52% of urban voters.

This is truly an issue that cuts across partisan and demographic lines.

In fact, from a list of 10 challenges facing the nation, no other issue was rated as a crisis by more voters than political corruption. Forty-three percent (43%) consider illegal immigration to be a crisis, 40% say the same about government deficits, and 39% believe climate change is a crisis.

The ScottRasmussen.com national survey also found that 33% consider poverty to be a crisis. Thirty percent (30%) say the same about racism, 29% believe student loan debt is a crisis, 27% think that describes economic inequality, 22% believe it applies to over-regulation, and 18% think it applies to sexism.
