Americans Oppose Washington, D.C. Statehood, Give Puerto Rican Statehood Mixed Marks

Rasmussen Reports released a national poll of American adults on Thursday which shows Americans are divided on whether Puerto Rico should be a state and oppose Washington, D.C., becoming one.

While 35 percent of Americans favor Puerto Rican statehood, 40 percent oppose the notion. A quarter of those surveyed -- 25 percent -- are not sure.

The poll also finds a majority of Americans -- 54 percent -- opposed to making Washington, D.C., a state. Only a quarter -- 25 percent -- support statehood for Washington, D.C., while 21 percent are not sure.

The poll of 1,000 American adults was taken from Sept. 23-24 and had a margin of error of +/- 3 percent.
