Sixty-six percent (66%) of voters believe it is important for the United States to hold China accountable for its abuse of the Uyghur Muslims. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 11% disagree and say it’s not important. Twenty-two percent (22%) are not sure.
Those totals include 37% who think it’s Very Important to hold China accountable and 4% who say it’s Not at All Important.
The desire to hold China accountable may be reduced somewhat by the fact that relatively few U.S. voters are aware of how China has abused the Uyghur Muslims.
Data released earlier showed that 80% of voters think it is important for the United States to hold China accountable for its use of slave labor and other human rights violations. Additionally, 60% believe it is important to hold China accountable for the spread of COVID-19.
Fifty-eight percent (58%) believe the U.S. system of politics and government is morally superior to China’s. Just 16% disagree.

The survey of 1,200 Registered Voters was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen on November 8-11, 2021. Field work 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.
