Education Association Viewed About as Favorably as Obama

The NEA (National Education Association) abetted by the Nebraska State Education Association endorsed the current occupant of the White House last Tuesday as expected. With that in mind we found a recent Rasmussen Reports polling of interest. According to Rasmussen Reports:

"A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 42% of all Likely U.S. Voters hold at least a somewhat favorable opinion of the NEA, with 17% Very Favorable. Thirty-seven percent (37%) regard the teacher’s union at least somewhat unfavorably, including 22% with a Very Unfavorable view. Twenty percent (20%) are not sure what they think of the group. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Among Democrats, however, 60% view the NEA favorably, while 57% of GOP voters regard the union unfavorably. Voters not affiliated with either of the major parties are narrowly divided."


We find it slightly telling that the number of folks that have a favorable opinion of this group is roughly similar to the number of folks that still have a favorable opinion of their president......
