Dec. 7, 2022: By a 61% to 26% margin, voters prefer a system where everyone has equal opportunity and some people end up far more successful than others over one in which the government ensures that inequality is minimized.
AScott Rasmussen national survey found that just 21% believe that meritocracy and a hard work ethic are racist ideas.
Sixty-three percent (63%) disagree, including 47% who strongly disagree.
The survey of 1,200 Registered Voters was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen on November 17-20, 2022. Fieldwork for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc.
Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, internet usage, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of registered voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
The margin of sampling error for the full sample is +/- 2.8 percentage points.
