Rasmussen: 64% of Americans Oppose Use of Prong One in Title IX Enforcement
Following up on the polling done by the New York Times on Title IX earlier this week, the folks over at Rasmussen Reports have done some additional work that has uncovered something that we’ve long suspected—a solid majority of Americans oppose the use of strict quotas to enforce Title IX in intercollegiate athletics.
The important information comes from this passage from Rasmussen:
But colleges have been struggling to meet the law as the number of students who are women has risen. With women comprising 57% of college students today, just 13% of adults think the federal government should require that each college have an appropriate number of women athletes to ensure that 57% of college athletes overall are women. Most adults (64%) oppose such a requirement, while another 23% are undecided about it.
The only fair reading of that is that 64% of Americans oppose the use of prong one of Title IX’s three-part test to prove compliance with the law. Click here to read the rest of the polling on the topic from Rasmussen.
