Poll: Americans Love Teachers, Support Teachers Unions (Even If Fox News Does Not)

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

This nugget was buried in the recent Wall Street Journal/NBC poll: When asked how they viewed teachers, an overwhelming 73 percent of respondents had an either positive or very positive opinion of teachers. Asked how they felt about teachers unions, a strong plurality supported them: 47 percent viewed the unions positively, 30 percent did not.

Note to Fox News: Your accelerated attempt in recent weeks to demonize teachers, and specifically teachers unions, is not working.
