20% of Trump's Supporters and 10% of Sanders Disapprove of Lincoln’s Decision to Free Slaves

"Supporters of the two Democrats are both more likely to support the racist policy than Rubio's backers by a margin of 2 to 1."

All scary. Trump's supporters (20%) were the worst, but this is ALL SCARY. Hopefully people were just confused by the survey question. Trump, Sanders (10% of his supporters), Hillary, and then Rubio's at 5%. BUT this was the question:

Approved or disapproved of "the executive order that freed all slaves in the states that were in rebellion against the federal government."

As I stated before, this is a nation where over 30% of Republicans believed that President Obama is a Muslim and over 50% of Democrats once believed our government was involved in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. We need to invest more time and resources into our education system.
