Poll Results: Convention on the Rights of the Child

Child Rights

Poll - Child RightsOn the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), polling data was released finding that, by a four to one margin (62-14%), Americans favor the ratification of the CRC.

The survey of 1,000 registered voters was conducted by respected public opinion firm Lake Research Partners and commissioned by First Focus, a bipartisan children’s advocacy organization.

This majority is true across party lines, as a majority of Democrat, Republican, and Independent voters favor ratification. In fact, voters are more than five times as likely to strongly favor ratification as they are to strongly oppose this action.
