New Umass Amherst Poll On Americans’ Racial Views And Their Attitudes Toward Critical Race Theory

The poll asked a number of questions about critical race theory and, despite the controversies being generated over the topic, one-fifth of all respondents said that they had never even heard of it. While 75% of the poll’s 1,000 respondents – and 95% of Democrats – believe that public schools should teach at least “a little” about racial inequality, more than half of Republicans (52%) say that schools should not teach the subject at all.
