A recent poll finds that most Americans really don’t see a need for a Martin Luther King holiday with only 34 percent of respondents saying that MLK Day is “important.”

The recent Rasmussen Poll asked if MLK Day was “most important.”

The results also seem to say that the importance of the day should not detract from how we view the work of the civil rights leader who was assassinated in 1968.

Rasmussen added that 83% of voters have a favorable opinion of Martin Luther King, including 50% who have a very favorable opinion.

The nation is split on whether the country has reached King’s goals of racial equality.

“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 40% of American Adults think the nation has reached the day when men and women of all races have equal opportunity, just like King preached about in his famous “I Have A Dream” speech 60 years ago,” Rasmussen wrote.

But a large number also disagree with that.

“Forty-eight percent (48%) feel the United States has not reached a time of equal opportunity. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure,” Rasmussen said.

The only reason this final result is realized, though, is because we have an entire political party that makes its money by claiming that the country is evil and can never allow blacks to be equal.

And they are liars.
