New Poll Shows Bipartisan Support For School Choice

A strong majority of Americans support federal funding for a school choice program.

According to a poll released by Gallup this week, 59 percent agree with a proposal that would provide federal funding for a school choice program that allows students to attend any private or public school.  Just 26 percent, or only one-in-four Americans, disagreed.

School choice is wildly popular among Republicans, with 74 percent in support compared to just 14 percent opposed. But even a plurality of Democrats- 46 to 38- would support such a program.
