Poll 14: Weighing in on American Civility

by EPI Staff on April 23, 2010

In a recent New York Times article “My American Friend,” columnist Geoff Dyer makes the case that Americans are civil – more civil than the Brits. What do you think?

  • Americans are civil – but are seen as loud and boorish by other cultures. (44%, 87 Votes)
  • Americans lack civility – especially when visiting other cultures. (28%, 55 Votes)
  • Americans completely lack civility – here, there, everywhere. (19%, 38 Votes)
  • Americans are very civil – here and abroad. (9%, 18 Votes)

Total Voters: 198
