HPU Poll:Fewer Want To Volunteer In Politics

(HIGH POINT) -- Just after the national election and during the season of giving back, a new High Point University National Poll finds that more people would rather volunteer for a community-based, non-partisan organization than a political group or campaign.

Of national registered voters polled, 36 percent said they “would certainly” participate in community service and volunteer activities for generally non-political organizations or programs. Another 37 percent also said they “would certainly” work together with someone or in some group to solve a problem in the community where they live.

In contrast, 40 percent of those polled said that they “would certainly not” work with a political group or a campaign.

“While we spend a lot of time examining politics through our HPU Polls, it is important to remember that most of the community service in which people engage is non-political and non-partisan,” said HPU Poll director Martin Kifer. “This data shows a solid proportion of our country intends to continue participating in activities that will affect life in their communities.”

Now I am going to read a list of things that some people do to express their views or take social or political action. On a scale of one to six where one equals “will certainly not do this” and six equals “will certainly do this,” how would you rate the likelihood you will take the following actions?
