Gallup: Americans Split on Whether King's 'Dream' Has Been Achieved

August 26, 2011

Fifty-one percent of Americans surveyed said that Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream of a racially equal America has been achieved, according to a Gallup poll published on Friday. Forty-nine percent said it hasn't.

The poll broke down responses by race as well: 49 percent of whites and 54 percent of blacks surveyed said that King's dream has been realized.

Among those who contend that it hasn't yet been achieved, 23 percent said that major progress toward the goal has been made, while 3 percent responded that there has been minor progress and another 3 percent said that no progress has been made.

 

The survey results are based on telephone interviews conducted August 4-7 with a random sample of 1,319 adults living in the continental United States. The margin of error is plus or minus 4 percent.
