30 years gone

 So CBS News Sunday Morning, in honor of its 30th birthday, conducted a poll using the same questions used by the CBS News/New York Times poll (and some other sources) 30 years ago.

Some of the results were pretty interesting.

 

 

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR NEWS? 

CBS/NYT L.A. Times Poll  

Now  12/1979 

Television   60%  41% 

Newspapers   14  42 

Internet   13  n/a 

Radio     7  11 

Magazines    1   2 

Talking to people  4   3 

 

Note the "n/a" next to Internet in 1979.

 

HOMOSEXUAL RELATIONS BETWEEN ADULTS 

      CBS/NYT Gallup 

      Now  11/1978 

Wrong   41%  62

Not wrong  54  25

 

There it is, in black and white. A majority of Americans now accept homosexuality as a normal state of affairs. Progress!

 

Progress on health care, too.

 

 

 

 HEALTH INSURANCE:  PRIVATE ENTERPRISE VS. GOVERNMENT? 

CBS/NYT CBS/NYT 

Now  1/1979 

Private enterprise  32%  48% 

Government – all problems 49  28 

Government – emergencies 10  12 

Don’t know     9  12 

 

A clear majority of Americans favor government-provided health care, at least in emergencies, and a near-majority favors it in all cases.

 

Take a look at the whole poll. It's an interesting three-decade snapshot.

Clarifying last week's remarks on our new president

 Several listeners have let us know that they thought we were too hard on President Obama last week. Give him a break, they said. He's only been on the job a little while.

This week we aim to clear the air. Let's start by saying unequivocally that we're still in the president's camp, emphatically so. But we're still going to do what we said we would during the campaign -- call for Obama to do the right thing.
