Quiz: How Politically Engaged Are You?

Americans may be frustrated with Washington, but they still think they can help their communities.

According to a new Allstate/National Journal Heartland Monitor Poll, nearly two-thirds of Americans say they donate money to community organizations and volunteer locally. Around the same number of people say they use social media and email to share their opinions with people they know.

And though many Americans say they vote in elections, far fewer say they engage with Washington and try to make an impact nationally. Americans are generally frustrated with their elected officials, and it shows in this poll. Fewer than one-third donate money or volunteer for political campaigns. Even fewer attend rallies.

 

So, while polling shows support for the president and Congress hovering around all-time lows, there's still room for positive action in local communities.

SOURCE OF CHART DATA: Allstate, National Journal Heartland Monitor Poll XX of 1,000 adults, April 9-13, 2014. Margin of error is ± 3.1 percentage points.

NOTE: Due to rounding, some bars might not equal exactly 100 percent.
