February 18, 2021: Thirty-two percent (32%) of voters believe that, over the next decade or so, American society will become more fair and decent. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 36% hold the opposite view and believe society will become less fair and decent. Twenty percent (20%) expect things to remain about the same, and 13% are not sure.[1]

Mixed views are found in all measured demographic groups. However, a plurality of Democrats, college graduates, urban voters, and upper-income voters express an optimistic view. Republicans, white voters, rural voters, and lower-income voters have a more pessimistic assessment.[1]

Data released earlier showed that 40% believe American society is generally fair and decent. Fifty percent (50%) hold the opposite view. These figures are little changed from last June but are notably more pessimistic than in the 1990s.[2]

Just 14% of voters think society is currently fair and decent and will get even better over the next decade.[1]

At the other end of the spectrum, 17% believe society is currently unfair and discriminatory and will get worse.[1]
