30 years gone

Categories:

 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.

Breaking Down Poverty's Barriers: An Interview with Dr. Donna Beegle

Poverty is more than a lack of resources. It creates barriers that isolate the poor from the rest of the community and from opportunities to break free from its grip. That isolation also extends to having a voice in research and program development for breakding down poverty's barriers.

Dr. Donna M. Beegle, a national expert on poverty, grew up in a migrant labor family. At 15 she dropped out of school, married, and after ten years of abject poverty became a homeless divorced mother with two children. Through a pilot program that helped her gain self-confidence as well as connections to resources and mentors, she returned to school, eventually achieving a doctorate in educational leadership. For the past 17 years she has conducted research on poverty, authored See Poverty...Be the Difference, and founded the non-profit PovertyBridge to work directly with people impacted by poverty. On March 7, she will be holding an "Opportunity Conference" with 200 Portlanders living in poverty. Her own experience with poverty is part of a PBS documentary, Invisible Nation which will air later this year.

Join Jo Ann and Dave this Thursday as they discuss with Dr. Beegle how to reach across the barriers of poverty to build a more equitable Portland. Can't call in during the program? Send us your questions for Dr. Beegle in advance through the comments section of this blog!
