64% Believe Positive Change in America Begins Outside of the Political System

Sixty-four percent (64%) of voters agree that “Just about all positive change in America begins outside of America’s political system.” A Scott Rasmussen survey found that just 20% disagree and 17% are not sure.

Those figures include 29% who Strongly Agree and 6% who Strongly Disagree.

Recognition that positive change generally comes from outside the political system is found across partisan and demographic lines. Sixty-six percent (66%) of Republicans hold that view along with 62% of Democrats and 62% of Independent voters.

The survey of 1,200 Registered Voters was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen on September 30-October 2, 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.

The margin of sampling error for the full sample is +/- 2.8 percentage points.
