August 25, 2020: Seventy-three percent (73%) of voters believe that America’s founding ideals of freedom, equality, and self-governance are a good foundation for bringing people together and unifying the nation. Just 12% disagree.
As you would expect with numbers like that, support for the founding ideals is found in all segments of our society. Among voters 55 and older, more than eight-out-of-10 see those ideals as a good foundation.
So do two-thirds of younger voters. The idea that these ideals represent a path to unity is strongly supported by white and non-white voters; suburban, urban and rural voters; conservatives, moderates and liberals; and college graduates and those without a degree.
The survey also found that 93% of American voters believe it is important for our leaders to focus on things that bring people together.
