Only 3% of Americans say that those that attended Ivy League colleges make better workers, while a resounding 79% said that they do not. Maybe Americans should remember this same poll the next time they elect a President. Maybe a better worker would have done some thing else beside playing another round of golf when the world and the United States is in turmoil. It’s time to elect a non-Ivy League entitled president.
Ronald Reagan was the last president we had who didn’t graduate from an Ivy League school like Harvard or Yale, and the highest levels of government for much of the nation’s history have been filled with Ivy League grads. But that doesn’t seem to influence the thinking of most American Adults.
In fact, only three percent (3%) say individuals who go to Ivy League schools are better workers than those who go to other schools. A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey finds that 79% do not think Ivy League students make better workers. Eighteen percent (18%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
