I cringe at the thought that this Gallup Poll from 1963 was conducted in my adult lifetime.

The fight for equal rights in this country always has had to overcome popular resistance.

  1. Wow! But today’s fight against gay rights, immigrants, Muslims, etc. is SO much different.

    This just proves that the majority is NOT always right.

  2. QuentinK: And those weren’t just slim majorities. They were overwhelming.

    When you add in the Glenn Beck narrative that progressives were opposed to the Civil Rights movement, I guess that poll also shows us that conservatives were practically an endangered species in 1963.
