More Republican Voters Than Democrats Disagree with ’12 Years of Slave’ Oscar: Poll

It looks like Democrats are more welcoming to the idea of “12 Years a Slave” being named best picture at the Academy Awards than Republicans, according to a recent poll.

In a survey released by Public Policy Polling, the organization asked 1,152 registered voters, via telephone and Internet, their thoughts on the Steve McQueen’s most recent film being named best picture at the Oscars. While the majority of respondents, 52%, answered “not sure,” dissimilarities appeared when the answers were divided by the political party the participants identified themselves with.

In all 53% of respondents who identify as Democrats said they agreed with the selection of “12 Years a Slave,” while only 15% of the Republican participants answered the same way. Also 23% of the Republicans went on to say that they disagreed with the selection, while only 10% of Democrats did as well.

The survey can be viewed in full here.
