A new Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey shows 43 percent of likely U.S. voters believe teaching Critical Race Theory will make race relations worse in America. Just 24 percent teaching CRT will make race relations better.

More and more parents are challenging CRT in schools across the country. Critical Race Theory has been described by Manhattan Institute scholar Christopher Rufo as “built on the intellectual framework of identity-based Marxism.”


Sixty-seven percent of Republicans believe teaching CRT will make race relations worse. Forty-eight percent of unaffiliated voters agree. Just 18 percent of Democrats share the view.

More telling, 43 percent of Democrats think teaching CRT in public schools will improve race relations. Only 11 percent of Republicans and 13 percent of unaffiliated voters agree.
