Just 38% of voters say American society is generally fair and decent. Nearly half (47%) say it's unfair and discriminatory.
That's according to a recent poll by Scott Rasmussen.
Rasmussen says he began in the 1990s asking whether Americans view their country as fair and decent. Back then, two-thirds of those polled said the U.S. is fair and decent. One-third said it is not.
Rasmussen reports a strong partisan divide in the results.
Sixty-two percent (62%) of Republicans say our society is fair and decent.
But 69% of Democrats say it is unfair and indecent.
More voters who call themselves independent side with Democrats: 45% say unfair/indecent; 31% say fair/decent.
White voters come down 50-50 on the question.
But 77% of Black voters say American society is unfair and discriminatory.
Forty-nine percent (49%) of Hispanic voters see it as unfair and indecent.
