POLL: Parents Still Don't Want Children Going Into Politics
July 5, 2013, 3:29 PM
Despite the last few years’ plummeting government approval ratings, the percentage of parents who want their children to go into politics when they grow up has remained remarkably steady, according to a new Gallup poll released on July 4.
According to the survey, 64% of Americans don’t want their child to become a politician, with 31% saying that they do. That’s similar to 1995, when 32% of parents were in favor for their boys and 34% for their girls.
