Pew survey: views on voting

What jumped out most to me on a first quick look at these numbers was the racial divide on whether voting is a “fundamental right” or instead a “privilege”. Blacks split 77-21 in favor of “fundamental right.” Asians and Hispanics were both essential two-thirds in favor of “fundamental right” while one-third in favor of privileges. Whites, by contrast, were split almost evenly: a bare 51% said “fundamental right” while 48% said “privilege.”
