Within the margin of error

TNR passes along some July 4 polling data from Rasmussen:
Seventy-four percent (74%) agree with the assertion that “all men are created equal” while just 23% disagree.

Fifty-six percent (56%) agree with the view that governments derive their only just authority from the “consent of the governed.” Interestingly, one-in-four Americans (25%) disagree.
The crazification factor continues to be borne out by empirical research. Though we can draw some comfort from the fact that, since it's Rasmussen, Republicans are probably overrepresented in the sample, driving those dissenting percentages up.
