Poll: Rural Nebraskans see lack of civility in politics as serious problem
Most rural Nebraskans see the lack of civil discourse in the political system as at least a somewhat serious problem, according to the 2023 Nebraska Rural Poll. About one-third of rural Nebraskans surveyed rate this lack of respectful discourse as either a very serious (32%) or somewhat serious problem (33%). Only 5% say it is not a serious problem.
“A lack of civil discourse is a problem we are seeing across the country, and it’s possible this will get worse as we approach the 2024 national elections,” said Heather Akin, assistant professor in the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Department of Agricultural Leadership, Education and Communication. “But knowing what our communities are experiencing is an important first step to bring people together again.” Nebraska Today | October 16, 2023
