18% Don’t Know How to Express Their Political Beliefs

When it comes to politics, 18% of voters  know what they believe are not sure what to say or how to say it. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 20% of women hold that view along with 16% of men.

The feeling of not knowing how to express what they believe is a bit less common among urban voters.

Twenty-one percent (21%) of white voters struggle with knowing how to say what they believe. So do 12% of Black and 8% of Hispanic voters.

The survey of 1,200 Registered Voters was conducted by Scott Rasmussen using a mixed mode approach from August 20-22, 2020. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Most respondents were contacted online or via text while 142 were contacted using automated phone polling techniques. Certain quotas were applied to the overall sample and lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, 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.
