Poll: Americans divided on NFL protests

Americans are divided over whether NFL player protests during the National Anthem are a respectful way to attract attention to racial inequality nationwide, according to a new PBS NewsHour/Marist poll released Friday.

Nearly half — 48 percent — of U.S. adults said these demonstrations were a respectful way to draw attention to their concerns, while another 46 percent said the protests are disrespectful. The remaining 6 percent of Americans said they were unsure.

Along political lines, eight out of 10 Democrats said the protests are civil, while nine out of 10 Republicans disagreed. Like the country, people who identified as politically independent were also sharply divided.

Stark divisions also arose among respondents across different racial and ethnic groups. Three-quarters of African Americans said NFL player protests were respectful, while a majority of white Americans — 55 percent — said the demonstrations were disrespectful.

The question revealed generational divides, too. Two-thirds of Americans aged 18 to 29 said the protests were civil; only 36 percent of those age 60 or older felt the same.

Am I a Democrat or Republican?

I found this quiz but I have different answers than many of the questions allow. What do you think?

1. Corporations, if left unregulated will end up destroying the environment.

True

2.


Sounds like you're a fairly conservative Democrat.

Republicans won't generally tolerate ideas like "Increase funding for the DoE" or "Drilling for oil in Alaska is bad" or "Public schools should teach all religions.
